CRUX: A Conversation in Words and Images - South Africa to South USA

The CRUX anthology is now available for purchase online at this link. Conceived by poet and activist Alice Lovelace after her fellowship at the Caversham Center in South Africa, the anthology features 58 writers (including yours truly) who had poems, prose, essays and artwork selected.
