Somewhere, a Woman Lowers the Hem of Her Skirt
Poetry by Laurie Rachkus Uttich
Riot in Your Throat Press, May 2022
This collection of poems takes the reader on a journey through life as a woman breaking free from the constraints of a quiet, midwestern life, to fighting battles for equality, to raising boys in a harsh society, to teaching students and making connections in an unjust world. Uttich teaches at the University of Central Florida and also leads creative writing workshops at a men’s maximum-security correctional facility, bringing her collective experience to offer readers poems about hope and happiness and heartache and finding your way home.
