Press and Media Mentions
- Peg Alford Pursell featured at the Association of Writers and Writing Program's "In the Spotlight."
- Interview published by Permafrost: "Goddess of Bibliotherapy."
- Review of Show Her a Flower, A Bird, A Shadow by Nicholas Alexander Hayes, published at Your Impossible Voice. "...her work is not a saccharine, cloying, or emotive nibble. Instead her pieces are like a well-aged scotch. You could take each of these narratives as a shot but doing so would miss the point of slowly savoring the complexity."
- Review of Show Her a Flower, A Bird, A Shadow by Libby Maxwell and published by Mom Egg Review. "Pursell’s honesty encompasses not only the truths that aren’t told, but the ones that can’t be known, and yet touch our lives all the same."
