(A Middle Island Press book release)
Hills & Hollows: A Collection of Doddridge County Poetry (ISBN 978-0-6924-4773-4) began in 2008 as a saddle-stitched chapbook. It then became a Second Edition which was trimmed in size. From there, it “graduated” to a perfect-bound cover with a photo by Cheri Postlethwait, an area certified organic farmer and friend who loves taking photos. We also “padded” this First Paperback Edition with front-matter and the addition of one more poet.
The thirteen total contributors are: Olivia Bochicchio (my daughter), Cleo Swiger Horton, Laureen D. Kelley, Mari McColl, Gilbert W. Neely, Judy Neely, A. L. O’Prunty, Wanda Osborne, Norma J. Owens, Frances McColl Stewart, Larry Homer Swiger, Christina Taylor (myself), and Robert Taylor (my husband).
This collection of West Virginia poetry sells at the café on Main Street (Porter’s Grinds & Finds) as well as online via Amazon.com. We’re proud to have seen this book into anonymous hands around America!
