Frayed Edges of Hope: Poets from the Very Edge

“Fly to an arid land where you can come to the table, hear stories woven from the frayed edges of our hope."



Join Kansas City’s Flying Ketchup Press as it releases its first collection of international voices in poetry. Co-edited by Polly Alice McCann and Araceli Esparza, “The Very Edge" is an intense collection of urgent and inspiring voices that bring together writers in English, Spanish, and French. It features New York poet, Anne Whitehouse, and Kansas Poet Laureate, Huascar Medina. Including textile designer and photographer, Samantha Malay, and the incredible meditative portraits by award-winning artist, Mano Sotelo. 


Let them take you on a journey across border towns and prairies to the top of the Swiss Alps; fly from the waters of the Amazon to Manhattan rooftops into an arid land where you can sit at the table and hear stories woven from the frayed edges of our hope. With art direction by designer, Kēvin Callahan, this book features several artists including the work of textile designer and photographer, Samantha Malay, and incredible meditative portraits by award-winning artist, Mano Sotelo.


This book is now available on Amazon and Kindle and soon Nook and other formats.
