What I Learned at the War

Jeanetta Calhoun Mish

“Jeanetta Calhoun Mish speaks from the body, the core, and her own earth. Rarely will you find a collection more honest, more true, than this.”—Kerry Cohen, author of Loose Girl: A Memoir of Promiscuity

In her third poetry collection Jeanetta Calhoun Mish sends war dispatches from home. She brings her unique perspective as a rural working-class Oklahoman, a descendant of defeated Southern supporters in the Civil War, and a first-generation college student seeking a new expressive life to writings that range from blank-verse ode to ghazal and flash memoir to narrative free verse.


Jeanetta Calhoun Mish is the founding editor of Mongrel Empire Press and the director of the Red Earth MFA in Creative Writing Program at Oklahoma City University.
