& Grace

Selections from Lexington Poetry Month 2015

Edited by Christopher McCurry

Click for larger image & Grace is a 218-page collection of poems written and submitted by a diverse group of poets during the 2015 Lexington Poetry Month, in which participants were challenged to write at least one poem a day. Our favorite poems were selected from those submitted, and the result is an emotional, courageous, and sometimes funny poetry collection featuring the work of 141 authors.
What Others Say About & Grace
The voices in & Grace are voices of seekers. Sometimes these seekers find answers, other times they stumble upon more questions. Unquestionably, though, these poets find poems—urgent, wise, alive with spirit. And grace. This is my favorite Lexington Poetry Anthology so far.

From the Introduction
The poems collected here do not seek to define or codify, include or exclude. They share a desire, maybe only tonally, to be heard. Through this, the collective voice of one hundred and forty one poets emerges … I know this sounds hyperbolic and sentimental, but spend some time with these poems, read them out loud; it will feel like praying.
