Poetry at Literati: Stevie Edwards

Literati is pleased to welcome Stevie Edwards in support of her latest collection, Humanly.

Of Humanly, Patricia Smith says, “With an unpredictability that alternately jolts and mesmerizes, Stevie Edwards has crafted an intricate exploration of life as we’d rather not know it. There is much in these stanzas to jolt and unsettle—stark crafting and a relentless respect for the possibilities of word create a tension only felt in the presence of revelation.”

Stevie Edwards is Editor-in-Chief at Muzzle Magazine and Senior Editor in Book Development at YesYes Books. Her first book, GOOD GRIEF (Write Bloody 2012), received the Independent Publisher Book Awards Bronze in Poetry and the Devil's Kitchen Reading Award. Her second book, HUMANLY, was released in 2015 by Small Doggies Press. She has an MFA in poetry from Cornell University, and will be starting a PhD in the English Department at the University of North Texas next fall. She currently resides in Ann Arbor, MI, and grew up in Lansing, MI. Her poems have appeared in Indiana Review, The Offing, Salt Hill, Baltimore Review, The Journal, Rattle, Verse Daily, PANK, and elsewhere.
