Week 15 UK Chapbook Chart 2018 – Erin Bethany

Serotonin is a poetry chapbook chronicling one person’s descent into depression before entering into recovery, told in a union of poetry and photographs. The words that compose Serotonin are a devotion to those who struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts, whether or not they say it aloud. Serotonin seeks to provide another voice to a heavy stigmatized and misunderstood topic and show people what life is like for one person who experiences depression and suicidal thoughts.

Erin Bethany is a child of the mountains residing by the sea who writes too much and feels too deeply. As the recipient of Fairfield University’s Eloquentia Perfecta Core Writing Award, she was published in an anthology of student writing, as well as has self-published a poetry chapbook on depression and suicidal thoughts, in an effort to contribute to the destigmatization of mental illness. She has also published a short story told in the point of view of a major depressive drug addict in Appalachia, bringing together her work on the topic of mental illness and Appalachian culture and life.
