NY Glam: What projects are you currently working on?
After my two collections of poetry and poetic prose, Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings (Vita brevis Press, 2020), and Woman: Splendor and Sorrow which will be published by Vita Brevis on July 31, I hope to start working on a new book of poetry.
The theme of my poetry collections is love. Yet Woman: Splendor and Sorrow also includes philosophical thoughts on literature, on winning and losing, on feminism, and on life in general. As Brian Geiger, editor of Vita Brevis Press, writes in the preface:
“Woman is a triumphant collection of poetry. Milton explores with sincerity and great craft the many faces of identity and womanhood. This is the sort of poetry collection that will resonate with any reader.”
I am thrilled with his description, as I was with the reviews I received for Passions from San Francisco Book Review and Manhattan Book Review.
When Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings came out Bobbie Peyton of San Francisco Book Review wrote:
“Gabriela Marie Milton’s new collection of short poems and flash fiction offers a series of contemplative and intimate writings about the shifting landscape of love.…
The series transports us on a journey of love as much as it delivers us a thematically diverse set of emotions. This is a superb collection.”
Jo Niederhoff, Manhattan Book Review, stated: “Where Milton really shines is in her imagery. These are no Keats-style odes, with stanza upon stanza to describe a single vase. Her descriptions come out in briefer segments: one line here, another there. She doesn’t paint details so much as she paints a feeling, with just enough precision that it becomes real nevertheless. Her words are chosen precisely, showing a distinct shade of blue or a particular floral scent. There is no laziness in her lines.”
I was pleased with the praise and the sales. Yet, I hope that Woman: Splendor and Sorrow does even better. I hope my readers will enjoy it.
As for new projects I plan to write another poetry book and a children’s book.
