Neoteny: Poems
by Emily K. Michael

 

Finishing Line Press recently published a new poetry collection entitled Neoteny:

Poems by blind poet, musician and college writing instructor, Emily K. Michael. This chapbook is a collection of poems at play, poems that reclaim the sensuous depths of memory. These poems celebrate music, imagination and the wild world. 

“Emily K. Michael’s work represents a new voice in disability writing, one that is addressed to friends and loved ones rather than to an anonymous and hostile public. This collection creates an intimate space in which insiders and outsiders alike can feel at home,” says poet John Lee Clark, author of Where I Stand

and editor of Deaf American Poetry.
