Collective Brightness

by Michelle

Collective Brightness edited by Kevin Simmonds, will be published by Sibling Rivalry Press, later this year. The contributors include Carl Phillips, Jee Leong Koh, Nikole Brown, Jason Schneiderman, Truong Tran , Nikky Finney, DA Powell, which makes me so pleased to be included. It may be one of the first contemporary anthologies covering LBTIQ poets writing on faith, religion and spirituality. Here’s just one imprimatur:

“Collective Brightness sheds a shining light on a journey that no longer takes place in the dark. The glory of holding Kevin Simmonds’s anthology in one’s hands is that it burns as the sacred text of our queer times: heavy with burden, luminous with hope.”
–Rigoberto González, National Book Critics Circle
