I’m honored to have a strange, mystical synesthetic poem, “Hue Sung,” in the latest issue of Red Ogre Review. There’s an eclectic mix of work in this issue, including art, prose poems, and poems. This piece will also be in their fall anthology. The acceptance came fast and the piece was up quickly. I love editors who are so professional and efficient. Looking forward to what Red Ogre does in the future.
Thrilled to be included in this Punk poetry anthology from Kissing Dynamite, a poetry journal (edited by Christine Taylor). There are lots of great writers in here including Michael Chan. Kissing Dynamite is one of my favorite, inclusive online journals. They publish poetry and art once a month and only consider one poem at a time (once per month). I’ve been fortunate to have been published twice in the journal (was a featured poet) and was nominated for Best of the Net for my queer Taco Bell poem. Read more about my other Kissing Dynamite publication, “Ensnared/Discarded,” in my blog. Purchase the anthology on their website and be sure to check out their brand new issue.
I don’t know how I missed this unless it got zapped in the mysterious WordPress crash of February, but my flash fiction/prose poem first published in Cincinnati Review’s Micro series was selected for the Best Small Fictions 2020 anthology. I received my copy a month ago, and it’s full of great writing including work by Kim Addonizio, Kathy Fish, Ilya Kaminsky, and many others. Pick up your copy on the Sonder Press site or on Amazon. I wrote this piece when I was about 25 in a class I took with Maxine Chernoff (a great prose poem writer). There’s a recording on the Cincinnati Review site, as well as one here on my “Listen” page. Also read Madeleine Wattenberg’s interesting article on Failure Poetics for a unique perspective on expectations and writing.
