Shenandoah University Adjunct Assistant Professor of English Lisa Wood (L. Marie Wood), M.F.A., M.A., MBA, has been recognized in Library Journal for her contribution to the new anthology, “Under Her Skin (A Women in Horror Poetry Collection, 1).”
“While the table of contents is filled with recognizable names such as Cynthia Pelayo, Stephanie Wytovich, and Lee Murry, two entries that stand out are ‘Harm’ by Emily Ruth Verone and ‘Beautiful’ by L. Marie Wood, visceral poems that pack an emotional punch, and yet, also hold a beauty, truth and lyricism that cannot be denied; a message carried with strength by the entire volume.”
Wood is an established author who has been with Shenandoah since 2019. “I was invited to submit [to the collection] by Linda Addison, who is the first black winner of the Bram Stoker award and someone I am honored to number as a friend,” Wood said. “I am a psychological horror author at heart but have dabbled in poetry sporadically over the years. My poem just happened to be a good fit.”
