I’m proud to announce that my newest collection of poems, Refugia, has been published by Persian Pony Press of Portland, Oregon!
(With the supple and fantastic calligraphy cover art of Patrick Barber at BlackLetterHeart!)
It is a rare thing to run across a collection of poems that lands in exquisite equipoise between that which is said and that which is silent. The spaces between sing, whisper, weep. They declaim love for the imperfect and the impermanent. To experience Kristin Berger’s Refugia is to skip stones across a frozen river, is to lay one’s ear against the groaning ice.
―Wendy Willis, author of A Long Late Pledge

So pleased to have new work published in Santa Ana River Review! “Echolocation” (title poem of a manuscript-in-progress), and “Physics of Fire.” Much gratitude to Kathleen Taylor, Poetry Editor, and the editors & readers at UC Riverside, and the good company.
I am so very pleased to have five new poems featured in the current issue of Light: A Journal of Photography and Poetry! Thank you to the editors, Jennifer Drucker and Manny Blacksher, for including my work, and for being a light in the independent publishing landscape.
