#Arachne5 Joy Howard

As part of our Arachne 5th Anniversary celebrations, we’ve asked all of our authors to come up with a blog, that might have something to do with writing or anniversaries. Some of them responded! This one is from Joy Howard whose collection Foraging we published this year.

A real pleasure getting my third collection (but my first with Arachne) underway with Cherry. Carefully edited and beautifully produced. Some poetry publishers produce a nice book and that’s it, but as most poets love showing off, it’s good to have a publisher who also actually sets up reading opportunities. So Happy Anniversary, Arachne, and all power to your elbow for 2018 and beyond.
