"Poetic Memoir Chapbook Challenge" Is Now Also Available at the Shelf Life Bookstore

Updated: Dec 31, 2022

I am extremely grateful to Shelf Life for stocking my “flawed” Poetic Memoir Chapbook. This book was the result of a challenge during which I wrote 15 poems in 10 days. My name may be misspelled on the cover, but I poured my heart and soul into each and every poem. Thank you so very much, Danielle Sawat!



Barbara Marie Minney has added another book of poetry to the local author selection!

It couldn't have come at a better time... have you also been feeling like you need more poetry in your life? If so, you're not alone- I've had several conversations recently about poetry, and not including enough in personal reading.

Poetic Memoir Chapbook Challenge is available now in the store, and makes a great poetic carry-around for the times when we want a break from large story volumes.
