WV Writers member released new poetry collection

In November, Finishing Line Press will publish a new collection of poems by WV Writers member Debbie Richard, entitled Resiliency

“Debbie Richard’s poems are rich caches of personal and rural memories: of lazy walks under moss-draped oaks, of a two-room school house and life on the working farm of her youth, of the last days and words of beloved parents. Her writing is a gentle, generous gift to each reader. After reading each carefully written piece, I felt grateful.” -Cynthia Hodell Dyer, poet and writer, Past President of South Carolina Writers’ Workshop

“Resiliency captures the essence of the poet's life and her communities. Through uncomplicated prose, she takes us into her memories and holds us there safely, until we're ready to reflect on our own.” -Carrie McCullough, publishing consultant and past vice president, conference chair of the South Carolina Writers' Workshop (2009-2011)

“Debbie Richard’s poetry collection, Resiliency, takes the reader on a tender descriptive journey through place, past and present. Firmly rooted with family and the South, the reader will find this collection both accessible and familiar.” -Sally Arango Renata, writer and folk-artist

Pre-publication period: July 24-Sept 8. Resiliency ships November 3. Please note that if you place your order during the pre-publication period, before September 9, shipping is only $1.99 per copy. The press run is based on pre-publication sales.
