April 2019

April is National Poetry Month. I’m writing a poem a day to prepare for a May residency devoted to revision.

I recently reconnected with the Poetry Society of Vermont through its national contest. “At My Sister’s Grave” was a finalist and will appear in The Mountain Troubadour. 

A new poem is forthcoming in Ruminate later this spring. Please check back for updates.
