I am so pleased and proud to announce that Trista Mateer has decided to publish with Central Avenue.
Trista Mateer is a poet from outside of Baltimore, who could be living anywhere by the time you read this. Known for her eponymous blog, she is also the author of four full length collections of poetry, and won the Goodreads Choice Award in 2015 with The Dogs I Have Kissed.
She is currently working as a freelance editor but still manages to spend most of her time Googling cheap air fare and writing poetry about things that don’t matter anymore.
We will be publishing a second edition of Trista’s book, Honeybee, in Spring 2018, which was originally self-published in 2014. While technically the book is a collection of poetry, it weaves its words around a thread of a plot of a woman living through the beauty – and pain – of love, and leaves the reader with the experience of having completed a heart-wrenching novella. With endorsements coming in from some of today’s most popular poets and a history of putting out amazingly-crafted prose, I couldn’t be happier to be publishing Trista’s work.
