About the Book

2013 Winner of a Goldie Award in Poetry, Wor(l)ds of Love, Loss, and Longing is a collection of original poems by author, poet, and singer/songwriter, Beth Mitchum. This collection includes many love poems found in her first poetry collection, bethwor(l)ds: 20 years of poetry, as well as dozens of totally new poems that were either missed in the first collection or have been written since the publication of her first book. All the poems here fall under the themes of love found, love lost, or inner longing. Beth Mitchum's poetry is very readable even to the person who never thought they understood or cared to read poetry. She hopes that you will discover a hidden love for poetry, a genre she considers to be micro short stories, both true and fictional. For her the point of poetry is to tell a story, or paint a picture in your mind, in as few words as necessary to achieve that task. She sometimes uses Haiku to condense her own poems into even smaller packages. A story, if told well, doesn't have to be 1000 pages or even 1000 words long.
About the Author: About the Author Beth Mitchum is currently living in Central Florida. She lived in the Seattle area from 1993 to 2010. When she moved there, she was able to say, for the first time in her life, that she felt at home. Although she lived in multiple places all around the Seattle area, her favorite nesting spot was on the Kitsap Peninsula, where she was able to enjoy waterfront living and bald eagle watching for most of the time she lived there. Before moving to Seattle, she spent eight years in the Asheville, North Carolina area, a place of great beauty and folk art culture. While living in Asheville, she attended graduate school at UNC-Asheville and received her masters degree in Humanities. Before moving to North Carolina in 1985, she lived in Lakeland, Florida, where she attended college, landed her first great job, and found the first of many really cool living spaces. Beth grew up in Winter Park, Florida, a European-style city in the heart of Central Florida.
