Written Reviews by Rose Solari
Rose Solari's review column for Washington Independent Review of Books is dedicated to the exemplars of independently published poetry. Each column features multiple collections of poetry that explore similar themes or spark formal comparisons. September 2020's review, for instance, focused on collections that "challenge and stretch the reader’s expectations in terms of content, form, or both."
