Skylar J Wynter, Neshka Turner
In the wake of COVID-19, Skylar J Wynter and Neshka Turner bring a captivating collaboration of art and poetry exploring humanity’s quest for transformation through adversity. Turner’s artwork provides the perfect landscape for Wynter’s unapologetic exploration of the challenge we face to be seen, heard, and accepted just as we are.
SHINE, embodying the work of two women from very different cultural backgrounds and lived experiences, is a visual and poetic invitation to embrace the abrasiveness of life. SHINE will crack you open, let in the light, and set your mind free with a humble truth: we don’t know what we don’t know, so the only way forward is with decency towards self and others.
The images on the cover and throughout the book are amazing. The author writes from the heart and also conveys her thoughts and feelings into her words.
This collection of poetry is so heart-wrenching and you can clearly tell it’s from the soul from the very first poem, which I love because it brings an unfound gnawing when you read these poems.
