Since no comparable resource on contemporary domestic fabulist poetry existed, editors Balkun and Moore curated a unique collection as both an introduction to and a survey of the ways women poets reclaim the domestic sphere and define a genre. Poets representing all regions of the continental U.S. and abroad spanning four continents find home here. Contributors include Kelli Russell Agodon, Jennifer Givhan, Miriam Bird Greenberg, Carol Guess, Akua Lezli Hope,
Colette Inez, Melinda Palacio, Susan Rich, Martha Silano,
Cecilia Woloch, and many others.
Carmen Maria Machado, multi award-winning author and Guggenheim Fellow, says, “Every page of Fiolet and Wing brings some new magic: birds and blooms, fairy tales and fabulism, the border between the domestic and the wilderness, the dream and nightmare of womanhood, the home as prison and liberator. I love these fierce, vibrant, luscious poems.”
