Ecstatic that my longest sectioned poem, “Redbird,” has found a home within this special Australian journal.
I’m all about women empowerment, and this feels like a good fit for such a vulnerable and important poem.
This newest issue of Not Very Quiet is set to launch tomorrow, September 14th. There is also an audio file, so you can hear me read, if you’d prefer.
Some wonderful folks over at The Poetry Question asked me to list my five must-reads or five favorite writers. There’s no way I could do so, but I tried to incorporate a range of voices, including some I’ve been lucky to learn from personally.
Check out my recommendations listed today on The Poetry Question’s #TPQ5 here.
Two of my poems are up on The Daily Drunk magazine.
I got the acceptance e-mail 10 minutes after I sent the submission, which was a massively wonderful surprise, and definitely a record for me!

Keep writing & wandering,
During this time of uncertainty and sadness, I have some good news to share—I received an acceptance from a top choice journal for my poem “Inside the Den.”
Check out Portland Review and read my piece here.
My poem, “Crystalline” is published in Poet Lore, America’s Oldest Poetry Journal.
They’ve been around since 1889 and published genius poets like Kim Addonizio, Carolyn Forché, Sharon Olds, Carl Phillips, and Mary Oliver.
I’m still shaking to my core with excitement.
Delighted to have my poem included in this anthology. Check it out here, available on Amazon.
Hope everyone is staying safe & healthy, in this crazy year of 2020 so far.
I was delighted to be a part of many readings in April— and this one was one of them!
About the Write Now Series, taken from their webpage:
Hosted with the Frostburg State University Center For Literary Arts, the Write Now Series is a collection of workshops, writing sessions, and salon-style literary discussions where student and community writers come together. Members are mentored by presses and established writers from all over the country and enjoy participating in a showcase reading at the end of each semester.
Check out the video, now available on YouTube, and find the Write Now Series on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Soundcloud, YouTube, and Spotify.
My segment is a reading of a handful of poems and only about five minutes long, so what are you waiting for?! Also, be sure to check out poet Rick Campbell, who gives a reading and an excellent interview as well.
I was scheduled to give a reading for Pretty Owl Poetry at White Whale Bookstore to celebrate National Poetry Month on April 22nd with readers Malcolm Friend, Lucia LoTempio, and Charlie Lefever.
To curb the spread of COVID-19, the reading was held virtually through Zoom on April 23rd.
