further praise for And My Blood Sang

And My Blood Sang by Maia Brown-Jackson is a powerful collection that packs a strong punch in a bite-sized package. This chapbook faces themes of trauma and tragedy and turns the pain of womanhood into a work of art.

Brown-Jackson beautifully captures the rage of trauma and the struggle of healing in a succinct yet descriptive manner. A wonderful debut that leaves the reader eagerly awaiting more!

 

—Sarah Blakely, author of Volcano Girl and Scarlet & Shadows

In 'And My Blood Sang,' Maia Brown-Jackson weaves words with a rare skill, creating a poetic tapestry where meaning is bound neatly between inked and un-inked spaces. Her mastery of language invites readers into an intimate dialogue, making this collection feel like a conversation between old friends, or just as easily, one between wayward traveling strangers. Each verse carries a weight of emotion, leaving a lasting impression that resonates deeply. Brown-Jackson's ability to succinctly express complex emotion is nothing short of remarkable, making this book a testament to the transformative power of poetry and the connection it forges between author and reader.

—Tara Sullivan, Freelancer and Nomad

In her first collection, And My Blood Sang, Maia Brown-Jackson grapples with the complexity of trauma and healing. Alternatively dreamlike and sincere, the singular voice at work in these poems is one we want to follow as it oscillates between mind and body, past and present, ultimately offering a moving reclamation of healing and narrative.

—Alise Alousi, author of What to Count
