APEP Publications is proud to present Kristin Garth’s The Meadow. The Meadow is a sexual memoir in poetry about Garth’s experiences as a younger woman, making a journey from nonconsensual sexual victimization to a meadow in her mind. The meadow was constructed, at first to hide, and then returned to years later as a sub space (a mental space a person goes to while expressing their submission). What began in the darkness of her youth, the meadow became a sanctuary of joyful place she sought to return. This collection explores a dewy path to consensual domination, discipline and degradation. The Meadow is not a universal story; it’s very personal and specific. It’s one 22 year old’s story of a journey into tall grass enticed by the flora to find fauna with appetites as bestial as her own.
