Turtle Island Quarterly

Many publications popping up at once… and I’m not complaining. My poem “If nothing holds, then begin anew” has just been published in issue 23 of Turtle Island Quarterly. Thank you to editor David Bogue and TIQ!

petrichor, again

Honored to be published for the third time in petrichor, now in issue 20 and previously in issues 5 and 15. (As a reminder, petrichor is that unique aroma of rain hitting dry ground.) Thanks, petrichor!

Dispatches from Quarantine

Some things just take a while. I submitted two poems to the online journal Dispatches from Quarantine back in February 2021. “The evolution, April” and “Surge” were published this week as Dispatch #081. Big thanks to Alexandra Kostoulas for seeing it through.


Impostor: A Poetry Journal has published one of my found poems in Volume 2, Issue 2, page 6. Always an honor to be selected. Big thanks to the editors, L.M. Camiolo and Coral O’Leary.

Aromatica Poetica, again

The online journal Aromatica Poetica, which celebrates the oft-neglected senses of smell and taste, has just featured five of my visual poems of scent. Another five were featured in April 2020. I’m so grateful to editor M. Leona Godin and her team at Aromatica Poetica for selecting and featuring my work.
