Gratitude percolates throughout the twelve poems featured in the Summer 2015 issue of the Coal Hill Review. Featuring work by Ruth Madievesky, Jeff Whitney, and collaborative writing by Simone Muench and Dean Rader, among others.
Nature and place-based imagery come to the forefront in the ten poems that flood Issue 15 of the Coal Hill Review. Amie Whittemore's canaries become "yellow ornaments in trees," Romella D. Kitchens' "Fairmont" opens with a red maple, while Alice Derry's reader will "step into a courtyard drenched in jasmine/and lemon blossom."
Poems jut from the thresholds of Issue 11. Brian Heston, Jennifer Soule, Rachel Andoga, Deborah Flanagan, Arne Weingart, Nellie Hill, Heather McNaugher, Duncan Campbell, Jeanine Stevens, and a collaborative poem between Walter Bargen and John Samuel Tieman round out Summer 2012's Coal Hill Review.
