Melisa is currently working on her chapbook with Yak Press as a part of their Native Blossoms Chapbook Series. Her chapbook will be released in fall, 2016. More information coming soon!

From the Yak Press website: “The Native Blossoms Chapbook Series embraces poetry of place, exploring connections to the natural landscape, the untamed, the indigenous. Each chapbook, while utilizing themes and concepts that comprise the contemporary American lyric, features at least one poem that takes the botanical name of a wildflower or other flora native to the poet’s locale as its title.”
