what people are saying about Versus.

Can good poetry be written on demand? Five poets were asked to write poems on fifteen topics like convenience stores, personal grooming, and public transport. The result is Versus., an attractively-designed anthology with many memorable poems like Howie Good’s arresting To the Blue, Claudia Bierschenk’s plaintive Old Women Blues, Ron Campbell’s biting Operators, Carolyn Cordon’s artful What Can I Do? and JP Reese’s scorching Ghosts. Can good poetry be written on demand? The answer is “Yes” and Versus. is the proof.

Bill Yarrow, author of Pointed Sentences
