Dream of the River


Jacar Press, 2021



dancing girl press, 2022

"Natalie Eleanor Patterson is adept at using a gentle tone and language to deliver hard truths ('The God who loves me is not the God of this.').... The ease at which Patterson mixes the tenor of her sentiments shows a writer who is paving the way for the future of lyric writing, space for the poet to 'suspend identity' and 'level up.'"

- Metta Sáma, author of Swing at your own risk
