About this title

Synopsis:

A Kind of Yellow is a chapbook of 25 poems by Patricia Lee Lewis, MFA, Pushcart Prize nominee and founder of Patchwork Farm Writing Retreat. The poems tell a loosely consistent story, beginning with a little girl in Texas, and move through her pregnancy at 16, birth of her son, his mental illness and suicide. As award-winning poet Richard Jackson said of some of these poems, "...there is movement from the physical to the transcendent, from the self outward, and each poem gathers definitions as it moves along, like lines or images in a poem." The book becomes in itself, a poem.

About the Author:

Patricia Lee Lewis was born and raised in Texas, where her three children were also born; for over 30 years she has lived and worked at Patchwork Farm Retreat in Western Massachusetts. She holds an MFA degree in Creative Writing from Vermont College, and a BA from Smith College, Phi Beta Kappa.  Beloved mentor of many writers, leader of frequent writing retreats both nationally and internationally, she has also been the publisher of The Patchwork Journal. A grant in 2011, from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, enabled her to help establish a writing program at her local library. Trained to teach English to speakers of other languages (TESOL), Patricia and friends volunteer in Guatemala.  Her first book of poems, A Kind of Yellow, was awarded first place by Writers Digest International.
