Where It Was Coldest by Alana Saltz
Where It Was Coldest was released January 2021 from Roaring Junior Press. While Flowers in the Attic told a tale of children locked away in a house, Where It Was Coldest explores the experience of being trapped inside your own body. Touching on themes of mental illness, chronic illness, and trauma, this series of erasure poems is inspired by my life and found words from the iconic horror novel.
Free/sliding scale download includes a PDF ebook of the chapbook and citation document with page numbers used to source words used in the poems.
