Calliope, a Greek muse, inspired epic poetry and eloquent prose. The authors of this collection found inspiration in many places. In “Foot Washing,” a woman with an unfaithful husband finds grace in ritual. An epic poem explores the poet’s Ojibwe heritage and her sense of place. Another poem explores a mother’s feelings when her grown daughter leaves home. In one story, a woman married to an odd professor finds a way of life that is a very good idea. “Paddle Through” is told through the eyes of a young teen who has recently lost his father. The very funny essay, “I Think I Can,” recalls the writer’s kindergarten years. Children will giggle over the lilting rhythms of “Witch Little’s Halloween.” Readers everywhere will relate to this rich collection of poems, essays, and short stories. Calliope is published annually by Women Who Write, a nonprofit organization based in Louisville, Kentucky. Each anthology contains work from members, as well as the winning entries from the group’s annual International Short Prose and Poetry Contest. In 2013, contest entries were received from thirty-three states and five countries. www.WomenWhoWrite.com.
