Outlook Springs Best of the Net Nominations 2023
Very pleased and surprised to be among Outlook Springs Best of the Net nominees for 2023. My poem, if William Burroughs Were Your Secretary, published in Outlook Springs print journal and online, was nominated. There’s lots of great poetry and fiction you can find on their site. Check out the print issue and my sound file on my audio page. Also, another funny poem about job interviews, “Core Values,” was published on their site and there’s also an audio file here on my website. I love Outlook Springs and am grateful to Jeremy John Parker, Andrew R. Mitchell, Jayce and Al Mitchell and the other editors for this honor (and for having a sense of humor).
Best of the Net 2021 | Kissing Dynamite Nomination
So honored to get another Best of the Net nomination (for poetry this time). Kissing Dynamite has been good to me. Check out all their nominations on their site. The poem that was nominated is “A Dyke Cowgirl Takes Herself on a Covid Taco Bell Date.” They made this part of their Featured Poet series. Related posts are the “Featured Poet,” another publication with them, “Ensnared, Discarded,” and a link about my Bending Genres fiction nomination. I feel so very blessed, especially after having a very rough year. These journals have both been very good to me.
