    Book Description:

    It’s a surprise to me that I’ve written this book. I’ve had it in mind to write letters to a new mother for some time, and I thought that was the book I was going to write; but one day I found myself in a fit and it had to do with writing. I was disillusioned by things I was seeing in the world of poetry, and so I wrote one letter in an inspired blaze hoping to let emerging poets know about the journey they were about to take. I think I also needed to remind myself of the truths contained in that letter. I often say, “I wish someone had told me these things when I started.” —Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie

    Dear Continuum: Letters to a Poet Crafting Liberation is a compass for poets and writers interested in weaving social justice and words. These nineteen letters and two essays explore writing, editing, publishing, Tallie’s journey as an artist in the 1990’s poetry scenes in NYC and Atlanta and the deep connection between writing and life. Dear Continuum is both a practical guide and a companion for writers dedicated to crafting stanzas of resistance.
