In the pages that follow are partial manuscripts. Kentucky and Tennessee imply their influence throughout the collection, while feminist ideology shapes the central themes. In the first work, we explore the world of willow, and willow artists of Kentucky.

Second, I present a selection of poems investigating the life of Austrian-American artist, Victor Hammer. Hammer was a long-term visiting artist at Transylvania University and began the Lexington private press movement that still thrives today.

Third, are poems taken from my own experiences. Finally, a short story that focuses on dysfunctional family, and self-realization.
