Here’s the latest from Atticus Review author alumni.

Chera Hammons

Chera Hammons’ new poetry collection Maps of Injury will be released through Sundress Publications in early March. Sandy Longhorn, author of The Alchemy of My Mortal Form, writes regarding the collection: “In Maps of Injury, Chera Hammons offers a steady wisdom born from a body and a land under siege. As the speaker confronts chronic illness and the land of the Texas panhandle weathers drought, we are assured that ‘Someone will always teach us how to grieve.’ And these poems do just that with subtle beauty and stunning revelations. Hammons’ lyric narratives sing in the face of difficult times and remind us to ‘let the dangerous world in.'” Read more about Chera here.
