About the book
About the authors
Publication is dependent on receiving sufficient quality poems for
inclusion in the anthology.
This work is dedicated to Katherine “Katie” Russell Barnes who left
us on June 2, 2017 at the age of 91. She was a wonderful poet and person.
We are all less fortunate with her passing. Katie kindly contributed to
sixteen OMP anthologies.
