Harold Whit Williams and Alex Salinas

Poems written from the inside-out and the outside-in of the Old Country. An old country of not only quiet County Down pubs and gritty Belfast streets but also of childhood singsongs and snippets of last night's office dream. Fiddles and flutes, pipes and pints, liquor and loose-lipped language. Bone-and-blood ballads in formal and free verse.

Harold Whit Williams is a prize-winning poet and longtime guitarist for the indie rock band Cotton Mather. He is the recipient of the 2020 FutureCycle Poetry Book Prize, the 2014 Mississippi Review Poetry Prize, and the Robert Phillips Poetry Chapbook Prize. The author of six books of poetry and one short story collection, as well as a multiple Pushcart Prize nominee, Williams lives in Austin, Texas where he records lo-fi jangle pop music as Daily Worker and catalogs the KUT Collection for the University of Texas Libraries.
