New Publication


Crystal Hurdle is thrilled to be included in the current issue of PLATH PROFILES, published Oct. 27, 2021, on Sylvia's Plath's birthday. Her poem "Staying in with COVID Sivvy" opens the issue, and her essay "Inject, Infect" explores the writing of the pandemic poetry series. She's most proud of the long sequence that closes the issue,"'Inspire' so close to 'Expire'," illustrated by her friend Natascha Taft. The poem imagines Plath and Hughes 'riding out' the Covid-19 pandemic.
