Her poem will appear in the 2012 edition of The Pushcart Prize: The Best of the Small Presses. Sarah's poem, "The Second Dream," will appear in the first issue of Adanna.
NEWS FLASH: We are so proud to have Robin Lim as a contributor for the first issue of Adanna. Her poem, "Janet's Son Has Died," will join many other outstanding works. Robin, also known as Ibu Robin, lives in Indonesia where she is a midwife, or "baby catcher." She has done great service to improve birthing conditions for women. In fact, her service has been so impressive and so valuable that she has been named a CNN Hero for 2011, and an award-winning documentary film has been made about her work. Please look over the flier and then watch the short preview of the film. We're sure you'll agree that Robin is an amazing woman.
