and another!

two more…


Thanks to the print journal Tiny Spoon for including two of my found poems in Issue 5, on ecology.


And thanks, too, to Medusa’s Kitchen, where five of my winter-themed found poems are posted.

The Indianapolis Review

Enormously pleased to have six of my found poems (and recordings) included in the all-visual edition of The Indianapolis Review.

The Broken Plate

And yet another… they all happen in the same week. Very happy to have two of my found poems in The Broken Plate 2020, an annual print journal.

The Night Heron Barks

The Maynard

Thrilled and grateful to have three of my found poems published in the Fall 2020 issue of The Maynard: One exists, The embroidering light, and you learn.

Based in Vancouver, BC, The Maynard is an online poetry journal that features “work that challenges perceived boundaries (lyric, narrative, experimental, etc.) of the written word.” I’m honored to be included.

Epigraph

After months of submitting, waiting, and wading through lots of rejections and a number of acceptances, it appears that publication month has arrived. Here’s another: Epigraph has published two of my found poems in Issue 21, pages 10 and 11 (view or download as PDF). My work last appeared in Epigraph Issue 16.

Entropy (again!)


I am enormously pleased that Entropy: The Birds has published three of my found-bird poems along with a wonderful photo of a juvenile Magnificent Frigatebird by Joe Meche Photography. Thank you, Entropy, and thank you, Joe!

(Entropy, which is a thoughtful and valuable literary resource, previously published two other found-bird poems of mine.)

Poetry and Covid

Bracken: corona hopelings

The wonderful literary journal Bracken has, since early April, offered an occasional series called corona hopelings. Here’s their definition of hopelings: “birds that live in the middle of your chest and feel things most acutely. Hopelings are migratory birds and travel regularly to Hope, no matter the distance. Corona hopelings are a mutated species of hopelings born out of response to coronavirus.” I am hugely honored that editor Alina Rios has selected three of my found poems for publication.
(If you enjoy them, I hope you’ll click on the little red heart at the bottom of the Bracken page!)

Petrichor

The word petrichor refers to the fragrance of first rain on dry ground. Petrichor is also a journal of text and image, and I am very grateful they have selected two of my found poems for Issue 15.

close, but…


Congratulations to Lytton Smith,
whose collection, The Square,
was selected as winner of
The 2020 New Michigan Press / DIAGRAM chapbook contest.
I am honored to have my chapbook,
Emphatic Pajamas,
a collection of found stories,
selected, from among some 400 submissions,
as a finalist.

Maintenant

Wow. Just received my copy of Maintenant 14, an annual journal of contemporary Dada writing and art. It’s an ambitious collection of some 260 pages, about half visual works, and I’m thrilled to have one of my found poems included.

Indefinite Space

Always a surprise and pleasure to find a fat envelope in the mailbox, this time delivering the 2020 edition of Indefinite Space, an annual print journal that includes two of my found poems. Special thanks to editor Marcia Arrieta.

Journal of the Plague Year

Journal of the Plague Year is an ambitious new online journal that seems to have been birthed fully formed in response to current events. I am honored to have been invited to submit my found poems and to have two selected for publication.

Full Bleed

Literary journals are not exactly high on the essential list (except for their staff and contributors), so it’s both gratifying and impressive when one carries on and births a new issue in spite of the odds. I am very grateful to Full Bleed for including to of my found poems, hummingbirds and to write, in Issue 4, out this week.

Pendemic

Pendemic is an online journal out of Ireland, created to share new writing in response to Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). I’m very pleased that they’ve published three of my recent found poems.

Explorations in Media Ecology

I’m thrilled (and a little dazzled) to have three of my found poems published in the scholarly journal Explorations in Media Ecology, Volume 19, Number 1. It’s a handsome publication. Here’s one spread:
