“Mosaicq” by Kitty Jospé published by Finishing Line Press

Dear Poet Friends —
The pre-order period for my book has started! MOSAICQ was semi-finalist for the 2012 Finishing Line Press “Women’s Voices Chapbook Contest”, and the press run depends on PRE-SALE, which has JUST STARTED.  So, although the book will be sent July 27, it is important to order a copy NOW.

Thank you so much!  

The cover of this book of poems is an art quilt by Mary Louise Gerek, titled Teal, Spring, inspired by the ghazal in this collection.


“Mosaic,” explains Kitty Jospé, “is the hard work of the muses, which is to imagine what isn’t, break what is and piece together the broken into a new whole.” In poem after poem, Jospé does this hard work for her reader, breaking what is and offering up an assemblage of mythologies within mythologies, At their best, her poems are alchemy — pieced together like a clenched fist from the fragmented heart of stone. Or pulled, like a sword, from solid stone. In these pages the Medusa’s mad stare. In these pages poems sinuous as tempered steel. In these pages poems that sting us to profound silence, like golden honeybees sprung from Machado’s broken heart.”

George Wallace, Writer in Residence, Walt Whitman Birthplace

More about Mosaicq:

These poems are marvelously enjoyable works of creativity and inspiration.  It’s obvious that the author lives life very deeply.  While other’s do their dance merely tip-toeing on the crust of an experience, Kitty Jospé seem to step passionately and sink gracefully into its meaning.  –Jackie Lippa, Artist
