Anu wrote this review of my zine A Few Words for a past issue of Zine World.
A Few Words: A standout poetry zine, Chantal has a knack for creating tiny little worlds within her poems. “Longing for Home” is touching love letter to New Orleans. “Revelation” has a great lesson in it that we all should learn. “Anarchist Valentine” details the ups and downs of a prison romance. Many poems touch on the magic of the ordinary, causing the reader to pay more attention to seemingly mundane things such as how the rain feels or the taste of cold melon. She is really good at creating phrases that convey a particular feeling. (see “Marshmallow Heart”). Accessible and moving, this is a great zine for those that don’t normally “get” poetry. Recommended.
