Between Us by The Z Street Writers
Between Us offers the reader a tight, eclectic collection of poetry and creative non-fiction by the seven Z Street Writers. Each of the writers, in their own chapter, leans toward the unexpected and under-the-surface in human encounters. As poet Matthew Olzmann observes, “The poetry and prose in Between Us hold something for each of us. Pianos appearing in an intersection, deer on a snow-covered field, chestnut horses, and worry dolls. It’s all here. Grief, loss, love, and longing? That’s all here as well.” In addition, for any reader curious about the Zs, each writer begins their chapter with a perspective on this unusual, long-running group - how it works, and what it has meant to their growth as writers. Between Us is a lively literary mix that lives up to its title, reflecting the collaboration among this unique, creative community, and intimately beckoning to us as readers.
The Z Street Writers are a group of East Coast poets and prose writers who have been meeting together since 2003. At their meetings they write together from a prompt, close-read and discuss the writing of other authors, and read and critique each other’s work. They spent months working on this book, barely letting a pandemic and full personal and professional lives slow them down.
