Featured SwEP Author: Lori DeSanti

Swimming with Elephants Publications, LLC would like to reintroduce to you to Lori DeSanti.

Lori DeSanti’s chapbook collection, Saltwater Under Brittle Sky, was published in the fall of 2015 by Swimming with Elephants Publications, LLC.


Lori DeSanti’s Saltwater Under Brittle Sky is a lot like taking a walk through a  sun shower on your own island, like waiting for the clouds to break and dry any wet that remains on your cheek—from dew to tears.  This collection of poems is compact but beautiful, unpretentious in their succinct on page presentation.  Each of the nineteen pages is no more than two pages long, and the collection is small enough to tuck into a back or inside coat pocket, a collection asking to be read in the open air, under trees and next to running streams.
