It’s always exciting to learn that poets here at 2River find acclaim elsewhere. Most recently, Pam Garvey has published her first full length collection at Five Oaks Press. Many of the poems in Seven Miles Deep initially appeared in Things Impossible to Swallow, an entry in the 2River Chapbook Series. Patrick Donnelly says that the poems in Seven Miles Deep cast “an unflinching gaze” on the sufferings of our times. These are poems worth reading.
