In Memoriam of Tessa Gartin (aka Asset Nitrag)

We have recently learned that a member of the poetry community, and submitter to our most recent chapbook contest, Tessa Gartin (aka Asset Nitrag), passed away during the judging process.

We are honored to have had the opportunity to read Tessa’s work. To celebrate their life and literary achievements, we would like to share a poem from their manuscript, CONFESSIONS OF AN ICEBERG.

Our hearts go out to Tessa’s family and loved ones. Rest in poetry.
