Congratulations to Phoenicia author Luisa A. Igloria, the new Poet Laureate of Virginia!
We are thrilled to congratulate poet Luisa A. Igloria on the fantastic news that she's just been appointed Poet Laureate of Virginia! Having followed Luisa's work (and her practice of writing a poem every single day) since the early years of editing qarrtsiluni with Dave Bonta, having published two of her books, and knowing her as a person, dedicated teacher and tireless, generous advocate for poetry itself, we can't imagine anyone more deserving of this honor. Luisa, we know you will bring dignity and excellence to your work as Poet Laureate, and we are so proud of you! Huge congratulations!
Newly reprinted and available for the first time via Amazon.
16 Contemporary Poets Consider Mary
with original linocut illustrations
Phoenicia editor Elizabeth Adams invited a diverse group of poets - Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and secular; mostly but not all female - to consider the story of Mary and the angel Gabriel for an illustrated collection, plus notes from each of the poets on their thinking behind the poems they've contributed. It has become one of our most popular and appreciated books: one that many people have bought for themselves and then given as a gift.

And from Luisa, a beautiful book of remarkable poems:

"Reading Luisa A. Igloria’s poems is like opening doors within doors within doors. These doors give access to the mind, the imagination, into lush and lyric worlds. ...Poem after poem reveals the Buddha. S/he is sneaky and coy. S/he peeks behind every stanza, meditating at every end-stopped line, her robes overflowing in every layer of images. And in the end, after we’ve taken in every poem, s/he finds a place in the center of us." -- Ira Sukrungruang
