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:

Miracle Monocle

Thank you to Sarah Anne Strickley and the editorial staff at Miracle Monocle for featuring three of my found poems in Issue 14, produced in the midst of shutdowns and many inconveniences.

Aromatica Poetica

Aromatica Poetica is an online journal that celebrates the senses of taste and smell. I’m delighted that they have published five of my visual poems during National Poetry Month.

Subjectiv Journal

What Rough Beast, again!

Extremely grateful that editor Michael Broder and What Rough Beast have published five more of my found poems of resistance (links to earlier issues in sidebar at left). A project of the Brooklyn-based nonprofit poetry press Indolent Books, What Rough Beast “publishes innovative, provocative, and risky work” with “particular relevance to issues of racial, social, economic, and environmental justice.”

There is hardly anything more relevant to issues of racial, social, economic, and environmental justice than your vote in November.

Please See Me

Please See Me is an online literary journal that features health- and healthcare-related stories in a variety of genres. Each issue is themed. I am honored that Please See Me selected two of my found poems for publication in Issue 4, on hope.

On the Seawall

Brave New Word, again

If having poems published can be called accidental, this issue of Brave New Word comes close. I had submitted these five found poems to another journal and received the nicest rejection letter ever. In it, editor Volodymyr Bilyk explained that the publication could not use visual works, but that he’d be happy to accept them for the upcoming issue Brave New Word. Herewith. And thanks.

Jam & Sand

another five

two more…

Otoliths, again

Otoliths is “a magazine of many e-things” and I’m honored to have five of my things included in Otoliths 56. My work was previously published in Otoliths 42.

untethered

Just received my copy of untethered, Vol. 5.1, a print journal out of Toronto that includes four of my found poems. Thanks, untethered!
