BOOK REVIEW
By Jenna Le


Guest Editor

AMY SMITH

Originally (and proudly) from northern Illinois, Amy is a recent graduate of the MFA program at Northern Michigan University, where she wrote a hundred poems about one hot mess of a farm. In addition to managing a university writing center, Amy is very publicly narrating the hot mess of her divorce on Facebook, and is excited to be inspired by your hot messes as she begins to write more formally about her own. Amy's other hot messes appear in Cream City Review, Hippocampus, LIT Magazine, Stirring, Yemassee, and elsewhere.
