In this small but influential state, its residents combine friendliness with a rich history all its own. The Mississippi Delta is known as the birthplace of blues music, one of the most American of art forms. And this earthy, deeply felt music has reverberated across the state and throughout the world. Native writers like William Faulkner have extolled the state’s virtues, and it’s easy to see why poetry is so abundant here.
And in Mississippi's Best Emerging Poets 2019, 13 up-and-coming poets have the chance to share their own words. Covering a wide array of topics ranging from love and heartbreak, family and friendship, the inherent beauty of nature, and so much more, these young talents will amaze you. Containing one poem per poet, this anthology is a compelling introduction to the great wordsmiths of tomorrow.
