Overview

Brave New Collection Honors Women's Spirit Worldwide

No Ocean Here bears moving accounts of women and girls in certain developing and underdeveloped countries. The book raises concern,
and chronicles the socio-cultural conditions of women in parts of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The stories, either based on personal interviews or inspired by true stories, are factual, visceral, haunting, and bold narratives, presented in the form of poems.

"Sweta Srivastava Vikram is no ordinary poet. The 44 poems in this slim volume carry the weight of unspeakable horrors and injustices against women. Sweta's words span the globe. Her spare and evocative phrases weave a dark tapestry of oppressive conventions that in the telling and in our reading and hearing, she helps to unravel."

-- Kay Chernush, Founder/Director, ArtWorks for Freedom
