tar river poetry
My review of Mississippi, a collaborative book of poems by Ann Fisher-Wirth and photographs by Maude Schuyler Clay, will be in TRP this fall. Excited about this, and grateful to editor Luke Whisnant.
Another journal I’ve admired for a long time. Happy and honored to have two poems forthcoming here later in 2018. Gratitude to all the editors, including Katrina Vandenberg, whose poems I love.
I’m thrilled to have three poems forthcoming in the beautiful journal Cave Wall in fall, 2018. They publish so many poets I admire, and sent me the sweetest, most generous, most fun acceptance ever. Deep thanks to editor Rhett Iseman Trull.
Thanks to the wonderful Kelle Groom, my poem “The Girl With No Hands” will be in Provincetown Arts in summer 2018.
I loved reviewing Ethel Rackin’s book Go On with J.C. Todd; I always learn so much from both poets. My conversation/collaboration with J.C. is now up at Jacket2, thanks especially to Kenna O’Rourke.
I’m really thrilled that my poem “The Trees” is part of the fall 2017 issue of Denver Quarterly, a journal I’ve admired for such a long time. Thank you so much to Carolina Ebeid.
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.
I’m honored and excited to have a new poem, “Small Music,” in Salamander’s winter 2017 issue. Thank you, Jenny Barber.
