Submerge is set to release Oct. 8, 2019. My sophomore collection will explore common themes in my work (trauma, mental illness, sensuality, & loss). What will be different is how deeply I delve into living with bipolar disorder--the mania, depressive episodes, hypersexuality, etc. Nothing will be held back this time.
This collection was the hardest to write. I had to take off the veil and rip myself open in ways I never thought I would but it had to be done. The more we talk about mental illness, the more we can strip away the stigmatization. I hope this collection resonates with readers even more than my first poetry book.
