Somewhere Between Rose and Black will be published by V. Press in December 2017.
“There is a disquiet that moves through these poems. Walker explores what it means to create a sense of home, and how the people within it build our longings around us. Beautiful work by a rising star in poetry. These are words that linger after the last page.” Angela Readman
“Claire Walker’s quiet, almost still, narrative through these poems could reflect their rural setting or the sadness within the protagonist, yet that quietness is deceptive. There are passions here amid the juxtaposition of man and stag. These poems will have you checking your fingernails for soil, seeing antlers in your peripheral vision.” Brett Evans
A sample poem from the pamphlet, as well as information on how to purchase a copy, can be found on the V. Press website.
