Phenomenal Women: An Anthology of Selected Poems (65 pages, 2023) is a new volume of poetry based on the title theme resulting from a Poetry Contest devised by the leadership of the Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation and the Indian River County Chapter of the American Association of University Women. The contest focus comprised writers of the Space and Treasure Coast and poetry selected from submissions of diverse forms and styles, ranging from almost Haiku-like offerings to longer narrative poems. There were three prize categories, as well as publication for twelve authors in a lively, and very engaging treatment of the theme, profiling, at times very specifically, significant women in personal or world-renowned histories as related by the contributors. The award-winning poems are featured in the beginning pages with a fine selection of accompanying poems to follow.
