In Forthcoming Epistolary Collection, Poet Addresses Artists & Wars

Through a welcome bundle of poetic correspondence with an international community of artists and poets, a seasoned North Carolina poet and spouse of a U.S. Marine shares intimate insights and observations on creating history, family, community, and art.

“In her engagements with poets from Ireland to India, as well as U.S. military veterans and families, Lisa Stice is an ideal correspondent with art and history,” says Middle West Press LLC editor-publisher Randy Brown about Stice’s new poetry collection, Letters from Conflict. “She introduces us to old words and new friends.”

“With the flow and scrawl of her metaphorical pen, Stice delivers every poet’s dream: accessible, illuminating conversations with our world-at-large—including our pasts, presents, and unfolding possibilities,” he says. 

Lisa Stice is the author of the previously published poetry collections Uniform (Aldrich Press, 2016), Permanent Change of Station (Middle West Press, 2018), FORCES (Middle West Press, 20221), and the poetry chapbook Desert (Prolific Press, 2018). Most recently, she was the co-editor of the anthology Things We Carry Still: Poems & Micro-Stories about Military Gear (Middle West Press, 2023).

Her work appears in print and on-line journals worldwide. She is a poetry editor for Inklette Magazine and volunteers with various other writing organizations. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, daughter, and beloved Norwich Terrier named Seamus.
