Ginger Ko’s First Book!

Poet Ginger Ko (MFA ’14) has her first book, Motherlover, forthcoming from Coconut Poetry in March. Ko also has a chapbook coming out in the summer, Inherit, from Bloof Books. It is an excellent year for Ginger, and we are thrilled for her and her talent.

The cover of Motherlover was designed by another talented MFA alum, Sofi Thanhauser.


Below is a provocative excerpt from her poem “Flora”:

There is no room in my heart for important men who surround themselves with flowers.
Take the garland of wives and daughters from around your neck. That you feel safe
they would not choke you makes me sick.

Cannot wait to read the whole book and recover from all of the sucker punches her words deliver.
