I’m very behind in blog posts but was happy to have three poems published in Alien Buddha at the end of January 2022. These are pieces from my manuscript, One for Sorrow, and address domestic violence, one, queers and the church–a tough sell for the lit world–so very grateful for the publication. Alien Buddha publishes a large format journal and books on a regular basis. Find this issue of Alien Buddha on Amazon. I will likely add the poems (or parts of them) at a later date.
This is nearly a month late, but I’ve been struggling with a photo I bought of Harold’s hearse (from the movie Harold and Maude) and finally finished it today. Was pleased to get accepted into Moist Poetry Journal, a queerish journal and feminist space started by Han Vanderhart. This particular sequence of poems was guest edited by Jennifer Funk. Check out my poem or ALL of the wonderful poems on the Moist Poetry site. Moist Poetry publishes a single (or sometimes double) poem three times a week.
Honored to be a finalist for my manuscript, Through the Body’s Bramble. Diode is one of my favorite publishers. Maybe a future book with them . . . Also had my 100th acceptance this week for a poem about my grandmother.
Looking forward to this new book by Lannie Stabile (a queer Michigan writer) called Good Morning to Everyone Except Men Who Name Their Dogs Zeus from Cephalopress Books. It looks like an interesting blend of feminism and Greek mythology as seen through Lannie’s acute and personal lens. Will be updating this page once I have a copy in my hot hands to read. Oh, I can’t not mention I am blessed to have a Leda Cartoon in here too (thank you Lannie). More soon.
