Poetry. Fiction. Literary Nonfiction. Bright Hill Press was founded in 1992; since then, the press has published more than 90 titles, primarily poetry but also fiction and nonfiction. This book, edited by BHP’s founding director and editor-in-chief Bertha Rogers, is a celebration of Bright Hill’s 25 years; it represents a cross section of the thousands of writers who have read their work at BHP and whose work has been published by Bright Hill; the writers are from the USA, Canada, the UK, and Europe. The work in the anthology also represents the diversity of and wide interests of the contributors.
