The Calliope Group Has Arrived

The new indie kid on the block, Calliope seeks to present the freshest voices, the purest lyrics, and the red dirt truth. Along with our online site Calliope Crashes, we work hard to bring you words worth reading.

We are excited to announce that our first title, the skin of dreams: new and collected poems 1995-2018, was just named the May 20 Review of the Day by Booklist. Calliope is proud to be the home for Lansana’s powerful voice and extraordinary verse. Learn more over in books, and read about Lansana’s career in Authors. Order the book and brag to your friends. Then have them order a copy to demonstrate your ability to stay humble.
