Climbing Lightly Through Forests: A Poetry Anthology Honoring Ursula K. Le Guin, edited by R. B. Lemberg and Lisa M. Bradley

Climbing Lightly Through Forests is out today!

Climbing Lightly Through Forests: A Poetry Anthology Honoring Ursula K. Le Guin is officially out today, under the care of editors Lisa M. Bradley and R. B. Lemberg.

When I heard that this anthology was going to happen, I sat down and tried to write something about what Ursula K. Le Guin was to me, and the whole process of becoming who I am and the groundwork laid for my sense of self. I cannot really claim her as a literary ancestor, I don’t think; I cannot see her touch in my prose. But I cannot escape my sense of her as being essential to my understanding of myself as a human.

The result of that introspection was my poem, “Of Winter and Other Seasons”, which is a meditation on gender, neurodivergence, and identity, which is deeply engaged with a number of Le Guin’s works for the cadence of its imagery. As you might guess it owes a great deal to The Left Hand of Darkness, but that is only where it starts.

Anyway. Poetry. As of today I’m a published poet; how startling that is.
