Issue 13

Enjoy the online version of Victoria Kelly’s Prayers of an American Wife, c0-winner of the 2012 Coal Hill Review Chapbook Prize.

These poems serve as a witness to the intrusive, residual displacement women experience as their husbands deploy. For brief moments, we learn about the battles that take form inside the bodies of those left at home.

Her fiction and poetry have appeared in dozens of anthologies and journals including The Best American Poetry series, The Autumn House Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry, Alaska Quarterly Review, Southwest Review, Prairie Schooner, and North American Review, among others.
