We Wrote Through the Apocalypse

Weeping Willow Books is proud to announce the publication of our latest book, Writing Through the Apocalypse, Pandemic Poetry and Prose! This work features the essays and poetry of thirty-two contributors from around the globe, including KM Bellavita / Jayne Benjulian / Toni Bixby / Valerie Anne Burns / Mattie Coll / Amanda Sue Creasey /

Amy Elizabeth Davis / Melissa Face / Nina Gaby / Gretchen Gales / John Glanville / Juliana Lightle / Joan Mazza / Golnaz Montagné / Shauna Potocky / Tania Pryputniewicz

/ Lisa Rizzo / Barbara Rockman / Kathleen Roxby / Rhonda Seiter / Nancy A. Shobe / Patricia Smith / Laurna Strikwerda / Justine Sutton / Andrea van der Hoek /

Claire Van Blaricum / Alenka Vrecek / Jamie Wallace / Julene Tripp Weaver / Kathryn Wood / Deborah Alston Wroblewski / and George Yatchisin.

The essays and poems in this book were written during the COVID-19 pandemic. Editor Marcia Meier organized a weekly writing session over Zoom in March 202, and this anthology contains many of the pieces that were written or started in her Saturday sessions.

We are deeply grateful to the writers, and especially Patricia Smith, Shauna Potocky, and Kathleen Roxby, who read and recommended pieces. Special thanks to Jamie Wallace, who commandeered Asana and kept the editor sane.

You can buy the book on all bookselling platforms, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble and (our favorite), which supports independent booksellers. It can also be ordered from any bookstore, so please order from your favorite local book purveyor.

—Marcia Meier
