The Weather Inside the House:  A Poetry Sampler 

We've borrowed poet Kevin Chesser's poem title to group the poems in this collection. We liked how these poems explore the climate of interiors—inside a house, inside a room, inside a mirrored reflection, inside the mind. Thanks to all the poets featured here, especially those making their debut appearance in Still:  Gaby Bedetti, Anna Harris-Parker, Joshua Lavender, Jimmy Long, and Bonnie Thibodeau.
