Water: 
“A foundation of life, water is at the heart of every community. Despite coming from different cultural backgrounds, these four incredible women of the 2016 Edmonton Slam Team dive deep into the depths of their lives to unite experiences and explore commonalities. Whether it features the water immigrants cross to a new home or the life that flows beneath every shade of skin, each poem is inked with family, love, and universal stories of being. Fire-filled words—which leave no stone of privilege unturned—balance this collection as it reaches its crescendo in group poems that merge voices and nourish the truth at the roots of humanity.”
