[Dis]connected: Poems & Stories of Connection and Otherwise, edited by Michelle Halket and published by Central Avenue Publishing, brings together eleven poets, Amanda Lovelace, Nikita Gill, Iain S. Thomas, Cyrus Parker, Sara Bond, Yena Sharma Purmasir, Trista Mateer, Canisia Lubrin, and R. H. Swaney, in an explosive collection poetry and prose. Each poet contributed three poems, and was assigned three poems by the other contributors. Each poet then wrote a short story based on one of the poems they were assigned.
Humanity exists in a hyperconnected world, where our closest friends, loves, and enemies lie but a keyboard stroke away. Few know this better than the poets who have risen to the top of their trade by sharing their emotion, opinion, and art with millions of fans. Combining the poetic forces of some of today’s most popular confessional poets, this book presents poems and short stories about connection wrapped up in a most unique exercise in creative writing. Follow along as these poets connect with each other—offering their poetry to one of their fellow contributors, who tells a story based on the concept presented to them. With poetry, stories, and art, [Dis]Connected is a mixed media presentation of connection, isolation, love, and loneliness.
