I am sure you have all heard the buzz. I have a new poetry book out called ::organic::

The reception has been humbling. Here are a few reviews that I have received so far:

In addition to a wonderful reception for the book, I’ve been interviewed twice; once for an article which is not out yet, and once for a terrific podcast called Words from the River.

Laurie Nave did a fantastic job with the interview and I invite you to give it a listen:

Words from the River Podcast

The conversation includes poetry, the writing process, poets and poetry trends, the human experience, and our connection to the natural ecosystem. I hope that you will treat yourself today with a cup of tea and a listen to this deeply inspiring conversation.

Poetically yours,

Praise for organic:

Christina Ward’s poetry is heavy with the music of nature. Soft, slow, beautiful, and strong, her verses take on the shape of the natural world around us, a world that many of us don’t take the time to see. Do yourself a favor and fall into her words. Let yourself be carried away.

 – Zach Payne, poet, author of  The Wrath and the Waves

. . .

Christina Ward’s organic heralds a new and vibrant poetic voice, one as distinctive as a bell, ringing truth in every poem of this remarkable collection. Divided into four sections, each addresses a different theme: “seeds,” of families; “soils,” of our vulnerable earth; “vines,” of the ties that bind—both nurturing and stifling; and “skies,” about the poetic imperative. In her final poem, “For the Eyes of God and Birds,” the poet tells us, “If tomorrow my words/get swallowed up in darkness/I will still, write a poem.” Believe her. This poet, honest and brave, will continue to ring her vibrant truth. 

–Jean P. Moore, award-winning novelist and poet. Her chapbook, Time’s Tyranny, was nominated for the 2018 Massachusetts Book Award.

. . .

Christina Ward’s poetry can take mundane observations and transform them into larger life metaphors. She has a keen observation and knowledge of nature, expressed beautifully in much of her poetry. Interlaced with flights into historical fantasy on occasion, all of Christina’s poems are teachers in unique ways.  I highly recommend organic  for anyone with an interest in poetry, nature and the unfolding drama of life.

–Randy Shingler, poet, essayist and author of the poetry collection, Tranquil Freedom.

Thank you to all of those who have already ordered their copies!
