Pownal Street Press is thrilled to announce we have acquired the rights to publish an expanded and updated edition of Love Notes to Grievers by Angela E. Morris.
Beloved by Angela’s followers, Pownal Street is excited to broaden the reach of this touchstone for grief, which is an important and impactful tool for people who are grieving the loss of a loved one—or so much more.
“Having navigated loss and grief, we at Pownal Street Press were immediately drawn to the truth and clarity of Angela’s writing in helping people to process their pain. We are excited to release this new edition in Spring 2023 and work with Angela on future projects.”Genevieve Loughlin, Publishing Director, Pownal Street Press
Love Notes to Grievers is a collection of poetic notes by Angela E. Morris, written following the death of her father, friend, and beloved grandmother, all within a short period. She shares them with other grievers as love notes to remind us to honour your love, and make space for your grief. Everyone needs support, whether in initial grief, years later, somewhere in the middle, or decades beyond. Love Notes to Grievers reminds readers to let themselves be where they are, without the confines of other people’s timelines and expectations. Angela offers raw, heartfelt reflections in the midst of the complexities of passing through these life-changing events.
Grief can leave you breathless, aching, and seeking. Morris’ losses left her on a quest to understand and make sense of grief, and the only way was to write her way through it. In Love Notes to Grievers you can flip to any page and feel supported in what you are feeling, especially if the people around you don’t seem to understand.
Angela E. Morris is a writer and massage therapist who offers people a soft space to land as they navigate their grief. She provides reflective writing on grief, loss and relational inquiry as it relates to grief, and pushes against how the dominant culture reacts toward death. She encourages her readers to walk together through their healing, taking the time to process their pain and be with their loss, carrying their loved ones with them, and not leaving them behind. Angela currently lives on the traditional territory of the WSÁNEĆ (Saanich), lək̓ʷəŋən (Songhees), Wyomilth (Esquimalt) peoples of the Coast Salish Nation (Victoria, British Columbia).
