In the series of promoting my #chapbook “My Body Is Not an Apology” by Finishing Line Press, today I’m proud to share this blurb by brilliant poet and co-founder of Matwaala, South Asian Diaspora Festival, Usha Akella

These poems recognize the body as the ‘eye of the storm’ in the turbulent churning of our age. The guttural cry of the feminine forges these poems with a primal rawness cast in images as varied as radishes, pickles, broken book spines, and armchairs. Megha Sood joins her unapologetic voice with urgency to erase any error of ambiguity, ‘You don’t own shit’. These poems will ‘sit like a welt’ on the tongue of the world.

–Usha Akella, Poet & Founder, Matwaala, South Asian Diaspora Poetry Festival

 

My Chapbook is currently in the open for pre-orders at the Finishing Line Press. Any order placed before August 06, 2021, will be added to my press run which further determines my author royalty.
A BIG Thanks to those two who ordered the chapbook and those who wish to purchase a copy here is the link–>

Happy Poetry!!

Megha Sood
