    Shelf Edition: K.P. Kulski

    Please welcome Women in Horror Author K.P. Kulski to the May 2022 Shelf Edition! Do you have any recent favorite LOHF books? I definitely need to talk about J.A.W. McCarthy. Her recent collection Sometimes We’re Cruel, and Other Stories is everything dark and unsettling. I loved every minute of it. The way McCarthy tells a story is like having a foreboding presence in the room with you, watching as you pour over the words, what an experience. Tortured Willows is a deeply moving work for me. The poetry collection from four fabulous dark poets: Christina Sng, Angela Yuriko Smith, Geneve Flynn, and Lee Murray. A collection steeped in sorrow, fury,…

    National Poetry Month: Guest Post by Eva Roslin

    We’re continuing our celebration of National Poetry Month here at LOHF HQ, and we’re loving all the recommendations and reviews we’ve been tagged in so far! In addition to book recommendations, we have a lineup of great interviews and guest posts with some wonderful women currently writing in the poetry genre. Our first of these is today’s guest post from author Eva Roslin discussing what it’s been like for her to break into the genre, and her feelings on writing poetry in general. You can also follow Eva over on Twitter at @EvaRoslin. I’m not sure if it’s because the way poetry is taught at least in most Western nations…

    Reading Poetry for Beginners: A Guide for People Who “Don’t Read Poetry”

    Poetry is one of my favorite things to read and has been for as long as I can remember, so naturally, poetry books end up being things I recommend a lot to other people. With those recommendations, I’ve noticed that people not already familiar with reading those types of books kind of balk at the suggestions. Sometimes the people I’m suggesting these collections to tell me they “don’t read poetry”, and it’s usually for one of two reasons: They “don’t know how” to read poetry (or say they feel like they’re ‘doing it wrong’), OR They’ve tried it and honestly just do not like poetry. Now just to be totally…
