I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been included as a semi-finalist in the 2018 Charlotte Mew Chapbook competition and that my poetry chapbook, The Salt and the Song, will be published through Headmistress Press! I’m honored to be included alongside so many outstanding women writers.
Apparently a failure in the self-promotion department, I’ve neglected to make a proper post announcing the availability of my new poetry chapbook, Recipes and How-To’s! Released in November 2017 through Red Flag Poetry, this collection of experimental poetry and abstract artwork may be purchased directly through the publisher: https://www.redflagpoetry.com/store/p17/Recipes_and_How-To’s_-_Virginia_Petrucci.html
Another poem of mine, “What The Bees Know”, is featured in issue 3 of The Ginger Collect. Have a read, along with other wonderful stories and poems!
I’m pleased to announce that a poem of mine entitled “Second Child” is included in issue 3 of The Ginger Collect. Read it here: https://thegingercollect.com/issue-three-the-ginger-collect/issue-three-poetry/secondchild/
You have an odd way of requiring “sir”.
Respect ground out of hurt, your status unearned.
A tremble of doubt, a flame to snuff out
a light like a feather, she’s hushed—all the better.
She’ll beg and she’ll bruise
The chamber you use
to hide all your faults
Your money: her vault.
I am very excited to announce that my poetry chapbook entitled “Recipes And How To’s” will be published in November 2017 through Red Flag Poetry. To learn more about the press, visit www.redflagpoetry.com, and for more of my publication credits, please check out www.virginiapetrucci.com
