Poetry: Alicia Mountain
From Jeff Layne on February 19th, 2020
Alicia Mountain is the author of the collection, High Ground Coward, selected as winner of the 2017 Iowa poetry prize. She makes it very clear her poetry is for everyone and anyone who enjoys it. Her work pays close and carrying attention to colossal, wide-reaching concepts like oppression and divinity. As well as small, intimately human things like chairs, holding a hand, and flossing. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, her work challenges binary thinking around identity and elitist structures. To purchase her works, find her twitter, or contact Alicia.
