Wolf Agodon

In Every Girl Becomes the Wolf, Andrea Blythe and Laura Madeline Wiseman shatter stereotypes and old stories through poems that pull you in with their imagery, voice, and imagination. In this beautifully written chapbook where People fill spaces with their sweat and sorrow—parlors/or bedrooms or chambers within others’ bodies, their voices are woven so seamlessly together, you don’t know where Blythe begins or Wiseman continues. Collaborations tend to pull the best from each poet and this chapbook does that. As a reader, you will open this book and linger, dappled in the woods of distracted adventure, and these poems will be your map of retellings, of transformations, where the moonlight lilts with hope; you will be thankful for the time you were lost in their words.
