Overview

The poets from Fat Poets Speak: Voices of the Fat Poets' Society again embrace their lives as fat women in a thin-loving culture and write poems about negotiating their days among different, sometimes dangerous and hate-filled worlds. But they are more than just their voices. They are women who live and love with gusto, passion and yearning -- they live and love fatly.

Fat Poets Speak 2 takes you on a journey through the lives of these deeply angry, loving, creative poets. Laugh, cry, commiserate and celebrate as the poets guide you through highs and lows, sadness and joy, grim defiance and determination and stunning pinnacles of loving and understanding. Especially lush and sensuous poems are starred for the benefit of readers.

Fat Poets Speak 2 features the poems of Kathy Barron, Anne S. Kaplan, Lesleigh Owen, Eileen Rosensteel, Mary Ray Worley, and Frannie Zellman, with new voices Durette Hauser, Deb Lemire, Dr. Deah Schwartz and M.M. Stein.
