USD PhD Student Focuses on Personal Experiences in New Poetry Book
Guess, who received a 2015 NEA Fellowship for Poetry, has written a new poetry chapbook called “The Patient Admits.” The book was released in September by Dancing Girl Press, and focuses on what it means to be a survivor of child abuse.
“I've been working on writing, publishing, and reading the poems in 'The Patient Admits' for years now, so I've been able to, over time, feel more comfortable having these words out in the world,” she said. “I feel that it is especially necessary right now for women's writing about sexual assault to be discussed and I'm grateful to my publisher, Dancing Girl Press, for believing in my work.”
In April of 2019, Guess’ full-length book, “The Truth Is,” will be published by Black Lawrence Press and will delve deeper into her experience of surviving abuse and living with mental illness.
