July 2019

Already, the days are shorter, the nights longer. These changes means more quiet time for reading and writing. In the meantime, Minerva Rising, Issue 16, What Matters, is available. I’m grateful to have three poems in this issue. Ruminate, 51, Consume, also arrived.

A new essay and new poems are forthcoming later this year. Please check back for updates.

I hope these days mean more for your creative time, too.

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.
