Barbara E. Young

Congratulations to our own Barbara Young on the publication of her book of poems, Heirloom Language, to be released May 20, 2021 by Madville Publishing!

Heirloom Language is full of poems about life and dying, growing up and growing old; about how being loved transcends endings, and how sometimes anger and irony are ways of expressing love. Reality is defiantly chaotic, and makes some poems partial truths, jokes, or outright lies. It isn’t their fault. That’s how things worked out.”

Barbara is the first to be highlighted in our new Spotlight feature here at Poetic Bloomings!

About Spotlight: Do you have a brand new shiny book you just got published?
