The Blue Nib magazine awards three emerging writers publication in chapbook form on a semi-annual basis.
We readers are also amply awarded with three fresh new voices in poetry with The Blue Nib Chapbook Volume 2.
I can’t say well enough how very impressed I am with the writing of first-place winner Anne Walsh Donnelly who gives voice to her native Ireland like many of the great Irish masters. Donnelly’s is a rising star to follow.
Second-place winner is Dr. Akshya Pawasker who offers us a distinctly feminine perspective in her pieces. This in no way is meant to imply male readers won’t “get” or enjoy her works. Instead it is to say the acute male reader will gain a greater insight to the female perspective after reading Dr. Pawasker’s poetry.
Bobbie Sparrow rounds out this fine book with her offering, which take us down a different path with each poem. Biblical themes, psychological examinations, historical themes, and rustic ones highlight Sparrow’s writing here.
The Blue Nib is my favorite source for new poetry on the ‘net and chapbooks like this show very well that this imprint is making good headway in the small press world.
