Jessica Otto’s collection speaks, pleads, and prays with divine inspiration to those who serve as oracles — and those who join together, oracular. Her imagery and variety of form make this chapbook larger than its handful of poems, reaching beyond “that crack between the horizon and the land.” In so doing, Otto becomes everything she explores — speaking, pleading, and praying for us all.

Print copies are available to order from most booksellers.

BIO:

Jessica Otto lives in the urban marshland of Arkansas with her husband and many cats. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College and is the author of Wormwood (Ten Pages Press) and Don’t–My Birthday (Unthinkable Creatures).

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:

“Her sneaky, feral poems will make your guts ache.”
Kristen Stone
