“Hi” nominated for Best of the Net 2017

Thank you thank you to Flock and its editors (Grant Kittrell, April Gray Wilder, and Elise Burke) for believing in me and my poetry and supporting it and me; they’ve nominated my poem, “Hi,” which appeared online and in Flock print issue 18! They’re lovely folks and this is so greatly appreciated.

You can read (and hear!) the poem plus a lot more great stuff from Flock here!



Two poems in the inaugural issue of Gold Wake Live

I’m thrilled to have two poems from a new project published in the very first issue of Gold Wake Live, the journal offshoot of the terrific book publisher Gold Wake Press.

The poems are titled “Push” and “Crowdfunded Poem,” and rub elbows with poems by some folks quite dear to me, including Hannah Stephenson, Amorak Huey, and Mary Biddinger, as well as some poets that are new to me but provided some truly wonderful work to set the tone for this new venture–poets I’ll be returning to, for sure.


Hope you enjoy the poems! If you’re a poet yourself, GWL is reading year-round, so send them some of your own work!

New Poem at The Shallow Ends

Endless gratitude to the wonderful Eloisa Amezcua, one of my favorite people in the literary community and always a champion of others’ work, who was kind enough to include my poem, “A Quiver Of,” in this week’s edition of The Shallow Ends.

It’s an odd, unusual poem for me, that gave me permission to create a static form and then work within that form’s framework for effect and transitive meaning. It was a lot of fun to put together, and I’m so glad Eloisa has included it in a journal that so routinely features stunning work. Hope you enjoy it as well!
