  1. Hi, Shannon, I listened to you read your beautiful poems about incest at the NCWN conference last week. I left you a message in the chat but later realized you would have no way to contact me! My poetry collection titled Asylum will be released by Main Street Rag in March. My collection is also about incest–generational abuse–and my mother’s childhood as the daughter of sharecroppers in Tennessee. I’d love to connect with you and also to read Blood Creek.
