With the annual Brick Road Poetry Contest, Brick Road Poetry Press seeks a collection that fits their mission of publishing poetry that entertains, amuses, and edifies.
Winner Susan J. Erickson’s Lauren Bacall Shares a Limousine was published this past December. The collection explores the lives of women across centuries and continents, including narrators like Lady Godiva, Lucy Audubon, Janis Joplin, and Marilyn Monroe, and gives voice to the critical moments of women’s lives.
This is Erickson’s first full-length collection. Sample poems can be found at the publisher’s website.
