Submerge releases Oct. 8, 2019



The sophomore poetry & prose collection by k.y. Robinson


From the author of The Chaos of Longing comes a powerful second collection in which Robinson uses the metaphor of water to tell a story about achieving wholeness through letting go.

Submerge explores immersion in and release from trauma, mental illness, and loss. “Immerse,” reflects on birth and beginnings while exploring themes of love, self-discovery, and cultural history.  “Drown,” examines mental illness, trauma, and loss. “Emerge,” takes lessons from water and begins a journey toward healing through self-care and gratitude. Throughout the collection, Robinson’s disarming candor, vivid imagery, and supportive message inspire and empower.
