A note from alum, Jodie Hollander

Jodie Hollander photoWe received an update from our Writer’s Room alum, Jodie Hollander, recently – with news of her upcoming poetry collection. Below you can read more about her work and her recent media exposure. We enjoy hearing from our alumnus – please share your updates when you can, too!


Dear Friends,

 I am delighted to share news of my forthcoming poetry collection, My Dark Horses, with Liverpool University Press (Pavilion Poetry Series). This book follows my childhood experience of growing up in a family of classical musicians, while also exploring themes of horses, storms, and the presence of the animal world. The book will soon be out in the world; however, I wanted to first share this news with my family and friends.

 If you are interested in pre-ordering a copy of my book, you can buy it from Liverpool University Press here:  http://liverpooluniversitypress.co.uk/products/86412 

Recently I did a short interview about my the book for NPR Lake Effect, you can listen here: http://wuwm.com/post/making-music-out-words-poet-jodie-hollanders-new-collection-my-dark-horses#stream/0

Finally, should you find yourself in the UK during the month of May, I’ll be launching my book in Liverpool on May 9, and have readings scheduled in Liverpool, York, Oxford, Cambridge, London, and Brighton. My website, jodiehollander.com, will stay updated with information about times and locations.

I want to thank you all for your love and support of my writing over the years. This feels like a big step out into the literary world, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without your love and support!

 Sending best wishes to all as we venture into 2017!

Jodie Hollander,
