Push and Pull
by – Belle Townsend (Author)
Available on Amazon
Belle Townsend’s debut book grapples with what it means to survive, to live, to be, and to create. Push and Pull is comprised of personal and palatable poetry, seeking to name feelings and experiences that we can all relate to. In a time of short attention spans and ever increasing burnout, Townsend seeks to share a piece of writing that can engage people who are not self-described readers. Townsend recognizes that creation is hindered under our socioeconomic circumstances, and so, this book serves to just be written as much as it serves to be read.
Reviews for the Book
Reading Push and Pull, I’ve learned that we must speak about our experiences, our pain, and the hurt that endeavors to isolate each of us from one another and seek out connection. Belle’s perspective on life and what it means to just be is eye-opening and I’m grateful to have it to revisit. I can't wait to read what's next. - egkp
