This poetry book was created by a group of amazing women called Circle, a diverse group of women at various stages in their writing lives, connecting through an intimate love of language. Circle was founded at Room Project in Detroit. They meet weekly to read, write, and talk about poetry centered on BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) women writers.
