Kirby Wright’s latest poetry collection now available from Moon Pie Press

WidowLakeBledKirby Wright has been a regular contributor to The Conium Review, with work appearing in our Spring 2012, Fall 2012, and Spring 2013 issues. His latest poetry collection, The Widow from Lake Bled, has just been published by Moon Pie Press.

He has published several other books, including Punahou Blues, Moloka’i Nui Ahina, and Before the City on Lemon Shark Press.

Our Associate Editor, Tristan Beach, had this to say about The Widow from Lake Bled:

Whether it be a Hawaiian beach or an attic in eastern Europe, each locale is rendered in precise and empathic verse. Wright’s poems are wrought with such care and intelligence — testaments to his mastery of craft.

Congratulations on the new book, Kirby!
