“A Bouquet of Daisies is your debut collection; can you discuss what the process of finding a publisher and putting the book together was like for you? I need to mention that you are a teenager, so this is quite an accomplishment!Your work reminds me of Rupi Kaurâ€™s and r.H. Sinâ€™s poetry . . .” Read the full interview at Albany Poets here.
“Megan Alice is many things: daughter, sister, feminist and full-time high school student.Â Somehow, though, she finds time for all her many passions, which read like a catalog for a small liberal arts college: dancing, acting, singing, writing.Â It’s the writing that is taking up much of her time this week. Her debut collection of poems, A Bouquet of Daisies, was released by Green Writers Press, a Vermont-based publisher of works they hope ‘will spread a message of hope and renewal.’Â The book is a collection of poetry and prose exploring relationships of all kinds. She also touches on mental illness, emotional abuse, sexual assault, and misogyny.” â€”Megan Alice talks about her poetry on KPBS public radio. Listen here.
