Cajun Mutt Press Reviews: Hesitancies by Sanjeev Sethi

Intelligent Water

★★★★★

Sanjeev Sethi’s poetry has the ebb and flow of intelligent water. ‘Hesitancies’ is a river of words that will take you on a journey to the far corners of the poet’s mind. Sanjeev packs enormous emotion into small spaces within this collection, some poems being only 5 lines long, and he is a true wordsmith. This book is a beautiful representation of the craft. Seamlessly shifting between the subjects of childhood, family, life experiences, and simple observations written from a philosophical point of view. This is an incredible collection of poetry, highly recommended.

Cajun Mutt Press Aug. 2021

August, the tail end of summer’s flame. Just before fall brings out death’s beautiful colors and the icy winter creeps in. These next few months are my favorite time of the year. Plus, they get bonus points for being so close to Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, I was thinking of doing a little CMP zine experiment for October. The minimum page count for KDP is 24 pages so I’d need around 30 poems. Keep it small, and around $5 or so. I was even thinking 5×8 instead of 6×9. I think that would look cool. Anyone interested can shoot an email including one short poem and bio to cajunmuttpress@gmail.com with Halloween Zine as the subject. It doesn’t HAVE to be ABOUT the holiday, just something creepy in general will do. I’d prefer if it didn’t rhyme. If I get enough submissions I’ll put something together for y’all and make a post about it with all the details later.

If you’d like to submit for a regular weekly featured writer spot, CMP is always open for submissions. Send 1-3 poems along with a bio and author photo to the same email address as above. I have one spot left to fill in October, then I’ll be reading for November.

Manuscript submissions are CLOSED but will reopen in 2022. Keep your eyes peeled for our next book release to be announced soon. In the meantime, you can grab a copy of our three 2021 releases by following the links below. I’ve also included a link to all of our available titles.
