Portland, Oregon— June 4, 2019 — Unsolicited Press announces the immediate availability of A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO HEAVEN by Jennifer Clark, a poetry collection that insists readers see the mystery in the every day, and revel in the wonders of such things as moths, dandelions, dogs, and beer.
A Beginner’s Guide to Heaven is not so much concerned with moving earth towards heaven, as it is with yanking heaven to earth. These poems are a gateway to an inner journey, reminding us that we are one family cut from the same cloth, spiritual explorers of this beautiful, broken world. The collection urges readers to pay attention and get to work, “while we still have time to build.” Even amidst our haste, failures, distractions, and worries, it’s all within reach.
Jennifer Clark is the author of two previous full-length poetry collections: Johnny Appleseed: The Slice & Times of John Chapman and Necessary Clearings (both published by Shabda Press). She is also the co-editor of the anthology, Immigration & Justice For Our Neighbors (Celery City Books). Her poems, essays, and fiction have appeared in Women’s Studies Quarterly, Fiction Fix, Columbia Journal, Concho River Review, Ecotone, and Flyway, among others. She lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan with her husband John and son Tom.
