It's ready!

I'm very excited to announce my second 26-page poetry chapbook is now available to purchase from Finishing Line Press. The most thrilling news about this second collection, is that a studio-recorded audio version will be made by the most talented R.A.D. Stainforth.  The CDs will be available to purchase at the time the books ship, March 1.

Finishing Line is a small press, and depends on authors to help promote their books. I have an advance sales period of approximately six weeks, before the pressrun is determined. If you are interested in purchasing a copy, please help me by doing so, as soon as possible, by clicking this link:


Thank you, dear readers, for your most generous support of my work. Without your encouragement, none of this would be possible. You are the best.

Like dragonflies that seem to materialize out of thin air to hover before us, each poem in Tess Kincaid’s brilliant second collection Unpressed is a slow-motion reveal of exquisitely realized imagery and electrically charged linguistic compression. Turning on the intimate moments of daily life, pulling us into a kinetic, often whimsical world, this is a book to savor and return to, best kept close at hand. 

―Jenne’ R. Andrews

Tess Kincaid's poems are delicious little morsels full of elemental observations and uncluttered declarations of love. Unpressed is a collection to savor and re-read to discover all its understated pleasures. 

―Collin Kelley

A consummate & compelling collection, Unpressed is both internally intensive and existentially, extensively profound.  In communion with a mistress of the poetic medium, I felt at the mercy of a potent imagination that never failed to deliver an incredibly intuitive and inspired expression.

  1. Uh-oh, folks. She's gone and got famous. Pretty soon she won't talk to us any more. "This number is no longer in service." There'll be book signings, trips to Europe, and we'll all just sigh and say we knew her when...
