    Sea Sharp: Black Cotton

    More about the book HERE...

    "Sea Sharp tells it without fear or apology but with confidence and control." -Dean Atta


    Sea Sharp writes poems that devastate and inspire. [...] These politically urgent and structurally daring poems are sensitive throughout to the power of sound and silence to make the body tremble. The phrase-making here is also incredibly fresh and distinctive. Here is an important voice. Here is language that crackles." -John McCullough

    Sea Sharp: Brother Insect at Camden Peoples Theatre

    Read full article HERE...

    "Writer and creator Sea Sharp is both outside and within the play, again challenging the boundaries inherent in our conception of space. They are at once story-teller and story-maker, their scream visibly disrupting the rhythm of Tiwo’s movements and the dialogue between actor and “brother insect” – whose presence is implied by the audience – as well as their own reliving of the past. The ideas behind the play are deliciously allusive, abstract and absurd."

    Read full article HERE...

    Brighton’s Sea Sharp, originally from Kansas, completely inhabits [their] poetry, itself a sort of blues, [their] warm voice wrapping itself around delicious phrases like “prairie inferno hopscotch”.

    Sea Sharp: The Swagger of Dorothy Gale

    More about the book HERE...

    "The poems are, at turns, exuberant, outward, historical, irreverent, revisionist, and playful. They swagger." -Debra Marquart


    "This collection will, quite frankly, ‘Knock your breaths out.’ Behold, a monument of new American poetry.” -Xavier Cavazos


    "All the time, they write with great music, a genius for dialogue and image, sharp critiques and bright wit, and in ways utterly powerful and tender." -Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg


    "Sea Sharp’s buoyant poems kick at the margins and don’t care if the roof comes down." -Elizabeth Dodd


    "This book has it all: heart, imagination, and a good ear for the music we too often forget." -Michael Mlekoday


    "There’s so much to learn about Sharp’s Kansas, when Sea imagistically swaggers and deftly leads us with wit." -Glenis Redmond


    "Swashbuckling language that delights as it informs and overcomes." -Denise Low
