Pandora cover

Pandora by Mollie Williamson

by Mollie Williamson

Publication Date: 20 April 2021
Nightingale & Sparrow Press

Genre: Fiction

Pandora explores the background and reasoning for Pandora’s infamous action of opening the dreaded box of fears. History has not looked kindly at this woman and the hope of my story is to give her a voice, a sense of humanity. Women are often blamed for all the faults in the world, but they are hardly blamed for being ambitious and that’s exactly what I wanted to give Pandora.

A Daughter for Mr. Spider by Megan Russo

A Daughter for Mr. Spider
by Megan Russo

Publication Date: 14 April 2020
Nightingale & Sparrow Press

Genre: Mixed Media

A Daughter for Mr. Spider is a cross-section of the author’s family tree exploring the grief the author has felt since the passing of her grandfather. The prose, poetry, and collage images weave together the fairy tale-like narrative of the years she was raised by her grandfather, alongside the author’s perceived feeling of growing up as an outsider.  

This collection is a call to finding happiness with those who understand you and shedding the negativity we choose to shroud ourselves in as we navigate the differences in the people around us.

A Daughter for Mr. Spider is a story of loss which, in the end, believes that healing is a process we must create for ourselves using the memories of those who leave us as a way to celebrate life.

Gravity by Lynne Schmidt

Publication Date: 8 October 2019
Nightingale & Sparrow Press

Genre: Poetry

Cover art by Reid Maxim



Gravity is a collection of poems that explores the rise and fall of an intense relationship. The kind where the other person is the Gravity keeping you anchored to the planet and you worry that without them, you may float off into space.

And then it is finding the strength to realize the relationship is not what you want, after all. It is several years, several breakups, several attempts to turn yourself inside out only to find maybe this isn’t the person you’ve been waiting for your entire life, and that you are the only person who can heal you.

Gravity is not just sweet poems about plastic galaxies. It is a cohesive collection recalling grief, anger, resentment, and love. Beware, there are lines in this book that will detonate you like a supernova. — Lannie Stabile, Managing Editor of Barren Magazine

Genre: Poetry



“I have to say ‘I love you’ / in a poem . . . ”

Micro is a microchapbook of micropoems by Nightingale & Sparrow editor Juliette Sebock. This tiny book contains 10 short poems and measures approximately 2.125 x 2.75 inches. Each book is handmade and numbered, representing its place in the limited 100-copy run.

Each copy is uniquely hand-crafted/folded; because of this, some uneven edges do occur. We think it gives them more character!
