Terry Ann Wright recently received her master’s degree from Goddard College, a progressive school that emphasizes community activism and democratic education. She has written and published poetry exclusively for the last fifteen years, receiving two nominations for the Pushcart Prize in the process. She spends her days ridding the world of comma splices, and nights planning food-based road trips and sometimes writing. Her poetry has appeared most recently in the journals Carnival, East Jasmine Review, Cadence Collective, and in the anthologies Cadence Collective: Year One and Year Two, Gutters & Alleyways: Perspectives on Poverty and Struggle, Like A Girl: The Pre-Show! and Like a Girl: Perspectives on Feminine Identity.
Then & Now: Conversations with Old Friends is a unique collection of poetry and art pairs inspired by the theme of “Then and Now”. 120 pages, perfect bound collection, 50 pairs of work from 45 poets and artists, with cover art by Alyssandra Nighswonger. Edited by Sarah Thursday, assisted by Terry Ann Wright.
“Then & Now: Conversations with Old Friends is a collection of poetry and art in conversation with the past. Within these pages appear pairs of works, which provide an insight into the growth of the artists and poets as both creators and as people. With contributors both well-known and up-and-coming, this book is a journey through time, through reflections, and through pain. The breadth and depth of the work within will enlighten, delight, and reveal life in all its beautiful glory and harrowing darkness. Come, join the conversation, and discover something new.” ~K. Andrew Turner, Editor of East Jasmine Review
