New Poetry Release + music companion champion self-love and reflection amid pandemic pause – Courtesy of CFG Public Relations
With the COVID-19 pandemic now one year behind us, many have found a way to use the solitude of quarantine for self-discovery. Chicago-based writer and performing artist Dana N. Anderson has done just that with her unique poetry project, Cries From Quarantine; Poem about Love (CFQ). Cries From Quarantine is a tender, insightful book of poetry about love of all kinds. From the unconditional type of familial love to the unconventional type of romantic love, the verses curated for this collection are intended to inspire a universal truth: that self-love is at the heart of all love. Each poem is written with gratitude for the stillness brought on by the 2020 pandemic.
The poetry collection is accompanied by a distinctly unique audio experience, which fuses both original music and spoken word. Executive produced by Anacron, CFQ: the Gallery Remixes is an audiobook unlike any in its genre. Ms. Anderson brings to life twelve poems from the book over a compilation of chillout / lo-fi / hip hop instrumentals that instantly become the soundtrack to her transformative journey.

Cries From Quarantine and the poetry album collection are available for pre-order now. The officially global released date is March 30, 2021.
