Pushcart Prize nominee John D. Gosslee
presents his new poetry collection, 12: Sonnets for the Zodiac
, which former Virginia Poet Laureate Carolyn Kreiter-Foronda calls "lyrically intense—each poem portrays
a compelling portrait that breathes new life into an age-old celestial system. With
a musician's heart, an eye for detail, and stunning craftsmanship, Gosslee explores the intricacies of the twelve signs—from Aries to Pisces—while dazzling the reader with his descriptive powers."
Joining Gosslee is Joyce Carol Oates Award winner R.S. Mengert
, who received his MFA in poetry at Syracuse University. He now teaches English at Phoenix College.
