Emily, an anthology of Dickinson inspired works

Emily is a 40 page anthology in limited edition (125). The cover art is a composed from detail shots of two pieces of art (see below). The binding is sewn by hand with heavy thread. | $8.50

Emily is a special edition outside of the regular submission period & subscription. We asked for works inspired by Emily Dickinson’s life and letters, suggesting only broad themes. We’re enamored of the smart, savvy poet, the woman who lowered cookies from her window for neighborhood children, baked bread for neighbors, and coconut cake for friends, penned over 1,700 poems, shared so much of herself in letters, and maintained intimate correspondence with her brother’s wife, Suzie, from across the hedge for all of those years.

Included in this edition you’ll find works inspired sweet Emilie and found poetry pulled from bits of her lines & letters.

Very affectionately yours,

Sugared Water & Porkbelly Press

Below: a little piece of art by Nicole Tong, which we really quite like as a companion to this antho. (Nicole submitted this as part of her packet, but didn’t have a file large enough as to be printable, so we’ve decided to feature it here instead!)
