The Muses’ Company is proud to bring to light the work of five exciting young poetic talents. Alison Calder unveils the ordinary day to reveal its lyrical beauty; Sharanpal Ruprai offers a rare and honest glimpse of family love; Melanie Unrau peels back the surface of our culture to uncover the uneasy tensions below; Kerry Ryan discloses the fear and courage in the hearts of young lovers; and Chandra Mayor strips language to the bone with her startling X-ray vision. Fresh, edgy, moving, provocative, and brand spanking new, the work in Exposed lays bare the creative power of a new generation of women poets.
