Chicago Poetry Press is excited to announce the long awaited release of the second Journal of Modern Poetry Book Award selection, Bindle Stick, Poems by Donna Pecore. Bindle Stick is Donna Pecore's first full length book of poetry. Pecore has been a featured poet for ChicagoPoetry.com events and publications for many, many years and her book is the perfect new addition to the imprint. Bindle Stick is a 76 page, perfect bound edition with custom cover art created by Emily Thornton Calvo. The book features nearly fifty of Donna Pecore's best poems. Pecore's manuscript was selected as part of the JOMP 15 Book Award Contest sponsored by Chicago Poetry Press (submissions are still being accepted for the JOMP 16 contest--click here for details). Larry O. Dean, author of Brief Nudity (Salmon Poetry), says of the author: "Donna Pecore honed her writing chops at the (in)famous WEEDS Poetry Open Mic, where many of Chicago's top 'saloon' poets rose to prominence, but Pecore's work is far from pigeonholeable. In Bindle Stick, Pecore name checks such classical sources as Horace, Blake and Hesse, not to impress her readers but rather to give them a point of reference, a beginning from which to enter into dialogue with these emotionally accessible and verbally playful poems." Pecore is a member of the Neighborhood Writers' Alliance, an alumnus of Northwestern Business College and Columbia College Chicago, and she recently completed her Masters at University of Illinois, Chicago. Last year Chicago Poetry Press honored Pecore with a Pushcart Prize nomination and she also received the prestigious Emma Stuckey award.
