Featured SwEP Author: Danielle Smith

Swimming with Elephants Publications, LLC would like to reintroduce to you to Danielle Smith.

Danielle Smith’s chapbook, Gnarly, was published by Swimming with Elephants Publications in July in 2015 as part of the student poetry series.

“Gnarly” is not what you expect: a collection of love poems, this is not an assemblage of sappy sonnets or couplets. Smith catches the reader off-guard with her close attention to sound, metaphor, and form as she explores the chambers of a bruised heart. Pumping out vivid imagery, there is music in these poems that should make you read each word carefully and out loud, relishing in Smith’s clever twists of language. A compendium of catharsis, ‘Gnarly’ will make you realize just how far you can fall in love with heartache.

Pick up Danielle Smith’s chapbook, Gnarly, from Bookworks ABQ during the month of April or order from Amazon or Barnes and Noble today!
