Product Reviews

I am very glad I stumbled across this book. Briana’s poems so clearly demonstrate bravery and the ability to communicate truth in a non-forceful, loving, and motivating way. Her poems (imo) demonstrate the impact of authentic expression. Each one felt like an invitation to expand and really look within. Highly recommend.

This book came to me when I needed it most. Beautiful poetry that I was able to relate to my own life and hardships. There were a few poems I read over and over before turning the page.
Nicole, Goodreads
I couldn’t stop turning the pages of this book. This book gave me all the feels. There are so many truths laid out. A lot of times I feel like reading poetry is like reading a journal where someone has written THEIR most personal feelings; however, with Salt Water I felt it was the connection fibers in all of us with the author spinning her connection to a central force.

Praise

“Salt Water is a slow deep breath, in and out. It sits in a new genre of poetry, somewhere between artistic self-expression and candid self-help. It is a meditation on acceptance, growth, and what it means to be human. Salt Water is the note you wrote to yourself years ago, which you find again when you most need it, that reminds you ‘it’s going to be okay.’”
Lee Crutchley, Author of “How To Be Happy, Or At Least Less Sad”

“There are too many words to write and too many things to say about the power of Salt Water. What I can say is that I cried, made many noises of epiphanies, and felt as though I was reading the words of my soul, written down on a page. To say this book is about enlightenment would be an insult. It is the awakening of self, the seeing of light, the acceptance of darkness, and the choice for greatness just as it is right now, within each and every one of us.
Dionna Chambers, Spokesperson, Motivational Millennial, Creator of Dream Series TV

“With every page I became more convinced that Salt Water is the book you’re going to see everyone with next year. The poems are solid, simple observations that get at the universal. For anyone with questions, Wiest’s poetry offers a new, wholesome perspec-tive, a way to ‘see the fractures as the design.’”
Chrissy Stockton, creative and partner at Thought Catalog and author of We Are All Just A Collection Of Cords

“Brianna Wiest does it again. Fantastic writing of poems that are simple in nature, yet give great depth when it comes to thoughts and emotions. Loved reading each poem, as it provided something unique each time.”
Faiz Aly, CEO of Aly Media

Press

“Mama said salt water heals,” Wiest writes in the closing poem of her latest poetry book, “Salt Water.” The piece finds Wiest reflecting on how the difficult things that help us grow, from sweat to tears, are also made of salt water. This intersection of emotional wisdom and the duality of humanity and nature is at the core of “Salt Water.”

I thought becoming myself
was improving each part
piece by piece

But it was finding
a hidden wholeness
seeing the fractures
as the design
