denver quarterly
I’m really thrilled to have a new poem, “The Trees,” forthcoming in Denver Quarterly, a journal I’ve admired for such a long time.

poems2go
I feel so honored to be part of this important and heartful public poetry project. poems2go provides printed copies of small poems to participating bookstores and cafes, so that people can take them (the poems, I mean) home to ponder over and live with. This week two of my poems (“The Bat” and “Window and Field”) are part of this process, and are featured on the website as well. Thank you to Christine Jones.

Thanks to the kindness of Andrew McFadyen Ketchum and Judy Jordan, some poems from Keeper (plus a review, an interview, and a writing prompt) are up on Poem of the Week.

I love it that two poems of mine are part of the current issue of Anchor (and a third is forthcoming soon). The journal (“where spirituality and social justice meet”) is gorgeous, and is doing important work in the world. Thanks to all the editors, including Nadia Colburn, whose writing and being I so much admire.
