Maitri Poetry’s first endeavor is Night Sweats of the Spirit: A lived experience anthology, its title inspired by the work of Robert Lowell, who lived with mental illness and helped destigmatize it through his writing.
The chapbook, released on World Mental Health Day 2022, features 13 poems by 11 poets.
“one universe, one body . . . in this urn
the animal night sweats of the spirit burn.”
— Robert Lowell, “Night Sweats”
