Andrea Gibson is lightning

Andrea Gibsons poetry feels like lightning. Listening to the their words in their own voice is striking, you can feel the crack of a heartbreak, the hope shining through, and so much love.
The delivery is as impactful as the poetry itself, when I read poetry in a book…I hear it in my own voice, hearing it in Andreas voice adds so more depth and richness to the experience. It’s thought provoking, inspiring and insightful.

I’m so looking forward to discovering more of their work, maybe on Audible someday.
