I am unbelievably honored to be in residence for the next two months at Civitella Ranieri, in Umbria, Italy, with a jaw-droppingly talented cohort of artists, composers, and writers from around the world. Also, watch out for new poems coming out soon in SpoKe and december magazines. Photo credit Deb Willis.
I’m pleased to have a long poem about lightning and grief in the most recent issue of Barrow Street, alongside a staggering list of incredible poets, ten of whom have names that start later in the alphabet than my own!
I’m thrilled to have had new poems chosen for second place in the Tucson Festival of Books Literary Awards, and look forward to taking part in the festival March 11-13, 2018. Huge thanks to Mary Jo Bang for her kind words about my work. Dickinson-esque(!?) Swoon.
Check out lovely writing accompanied by gorgeous artwork in the current issue of RADAR. Many thanks to editors Rachel Marie Patterson and Dara-Lyn Shrager for including a series of my poems as finalists for the Coniston Prize.
Best American Poetry is here, with a gorgeous, heartbreaking introduction by Natasha Trethewey. So honored to have a poem in these pages alongside many of my poetry idols, not to mention thrilled to be part of the launch reading at the New School on September 28th. Come join us if you’re in NYC!
This issue is packed full of incredible poems! Plus a few of mine. Enjoy!
Still in disbelief that the brilliant Natasha Trethewey has chosen my poem, Dear Skull, for inclusion in Best American Poetry 2017. Thank you to the Georgia Review for publishing the poem first!
