I Am Here | Ashley Opheim

"I Am Here is your mystical aura reading on the go. It's also an excellent poetry book that attempts to reconcile the spiritual with the digital." —Gabby Bess [author of Alone With Other People] via PAPERMAG

"This is a poet desperately searching for authenticity. Reading this, I feel her pain and tragic yearning for something more. She writes frantically, piecing together ideas with a fervent thread, something like Kerouac at his best, except she's not a stupid boy, she's a chaotic force of nature. She analyzes and picks at the scabs of the world, peeling away dead skin to reveal glimpses of the sublime." —Megan Lent, Arbitrary News and Review

"Long poems that speak of the body and Internet, of celebrating love and nature, and written with an honest outspokenness that makes reading her poetry almost like reading the confessions of a good friend." —Luna Miguel [author of Poetry is not dead and Bluebird and Other Tattoos] via Playground

__________________________________________________________________________

I Am Here navigates the vast, inner realms of a girl on the verge of womanhood. Using both stream-of-consciousness and the confessional mode, I Am Here attempts to merge the ancient spiritual world with the contemporary technological world. From auras to iPhones, what emerges in this unique collection of poetry is  a perspective that is bursting with introspective curiosity.

Ashley Opheim is the managing editor of Metatron and founder/co-director of This Is Happening Whether You Like It Or Not, a reading series in Montréal. She completed her BA in Creative Writing at Concordia University in 2012. She lives in Montréal.
