Type of Work



Writing poems about not being able to write is a long-standing tradition among poets. They're an irony in and of themselves: the use of words to tell someone you have no words at all.

Contributor's Note

Rebekah Erway is a lover of words and how they fit together to roll off tongues and into minds, presenting ideas that people knew but didn't recognize, pointing them towards God and his truth.
