As bittersweet as it is that Crab Orchard Review has released their final print issue, I’m grateful that the literary journal will still be published online. They’ve also made their entire archives available on the internet. Check it out! And look for yours truly in Volume 22, the final print double issue, in Weather Reports: All About the Weather with my poem “Map Making for Ex-Missionaries” (on page 316 no less–coincidence?!?).
Pleased to have a poem in the American Poetry Journal as it seeks a new direction.
My poem “Hit, Run” is up at E-verse Radio today!
My thanks to the Tanka Society of America for awarding one of my tanka an honorable mention in the Sanford Goldstein International Tanka Contest. Congrats to all the winners!
My poem “Fables from the Petrified Forest” has been awarded the 2014 Beullah Rose Poetry Prize by Smartish Pace. Thank you to the editors for selecting my poem!
Unsplendid has published my poem “Salt Myth” in their Women and Form issue, and you can even hear me read it aloud on their site. This poem is a progressive sestina in which the end words evolve from stanza to stanza much as they would in a game of telephone.
I wrote a series of ekphrastic tanka inspired by Impressionist paintings and the good people over at The Burlesque Variety Show were kind enough to publish them.
My ekphrastic poem “Monet’s Poplars on the Epte” is up at The Burlesque Variety Show.
