NEW from Blood Pudding Press! - Fiddle Is Flood by Lauren Gordon - the first Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook of 2015!

The first new Blood Pudding Press contest winning poetry chapbook of 2015, Fiddle is Flood, by Lauren Gordon, offers twenty-two unique and powerful poems, inspired by Little House on the Prairie!

Semi-abstract and gorgeously emotional, fabulously crafted, with an utterly one-of-a-kind approach, this content is worth multiple reads.

It is also charmingly wonderful to hold this hand-designed chapbook in all its cover art glory and yarn binding.

The cover art was created by the poet herself. 

Here are a few sample lines for you, from the poem "Dreamt of Haying" -

as we do what we please
Godless muskrats clambering

up parched tight grass

my prayers sound like a woman

behind a sheet in the ink
with a knife a knife renting
air terror my prayers sound like
