Publication Announcement by Nearby Universe Founder Brook Bhagat

Brook Bhagat is thrilled to share the news that her poetry collection, Only Flying, due for release in November of this year, is now available for preorder.

From the publisher’s website: “Only Flying is a collection of surreal free verse and prose poetry that celebrates transformation and paradox, exploring both the silence of the seeker and the outrageous wilderness of the imagination. Thematic threads like rebellion, enlightenment, risk, courage, love, loss, and triumph dance to life with pictures that swing from dark to light, surreal to whimsical, and strange to familiar. There are intimate goddesses here, black widows, buddhas, alley cats, a kangaroo, and magic pants—blacklight-blue Hendrix flares that hang from a fire escape, just waiting for the right person to jump up and steal them. That person is you.” 

Maybe this took two years of writing, eighteen months of queries and rejections, and a year and a half of editing. Or maybe it took 40 years, if you count from the time I decided to be a writer, in first grade. Either way, it’s all been worth it! A huge thank you to this spectacular nearby universe for your feedback, encouragement, and friendship–you helped make this book better and helped me hang in there along the way.
