Poetry. HARD REDS is the first collection of poems by Chicago-based poet and small-press publisher Brandi Homan. "Like the stream of cut-paper hearts in her Valentine Factory, Brandi Homan's poems are connected 'at the blade's edge,' are all 'hard reds' -- an intelligent and imaginative woman coming to terms with desire. This collection is an exciting 'kick-start' for her electric voice"--David Trinidad.
Brandi Homan is editor-in-chief of Switchback Books, a feminist press that publishes poetry by women. She earned her MFA from Columbia College, Chicago, and her MA from the University of Illinois at Chicago.
