We at Drafty Attic Press are pleased to announce the release of Toby Bielawski's new chapbook, Five Kinds of Fences. Thanks to everyone who submitted to the New Word Order contest and to our gracious sponsors for the opportunity to release this quality work of literature. Read what other authors are saying about the book:
Toby Bielawski’s poems survey the landscapes of earth and sky and the inner landscapes of the mind with a clear-eyed curiosity. Whether contemplating five kinds of fences or the terrors and consolations of the stars, whether sorting and weighing the scrap metal of the past or celebrating the molten metal of sexuality, she is committed to learning “how the taproot lives.” She regards the surreal terrain of insomnia with quiet humor and brings a sense of grateful wonder to the “cabin” of “safe space” inside the poet's mind. The poems in this debut collection range widely, but Toby Bielawski’s compass needle seeks and finds “true north.”
author of Blood Honey
Her poems brim with a reverent buoyancy for nature, with the affirmation of the true, often splintered self, and with the hidden meaning behind everyday things in the palm of one's hands.
