Our newest poetry anthology documents the fear, the injustice, the defiance, and even the humor of the novel coronavirus disaster. In Absentia: Reflections on the Pandemic offers 28 new poems from Sara Brickman, Laura Brown-Lavoie, Aaya Perez, Drew Pham, sam sax, Kimberly Ann Southwick, and over a dozen other talents.

The team practiced radical financial transparency on this project. Poets, editors, and the designer got paid.
