Red Eft Review (again!)

Red Eft Review

So grateful to editor Corey Cook, who has published my poem “Summer Days” in Red Eft Review. (A red eft is the terrestrial juvenile stage in the metamorphosis of the eastern newt of North America.)

Quartet Journal

Quartet Journal has published my poem “Ornament” in the Summer 2021 issue along with a brief explanation. (The poem appears not quite halfway down the page.) I’m honored to be included in this lovely collection.

Breathe

Was pleased to open my email and find a link to the latest issue of Breathe, with a found poem of mine included (and, according to the note, more to come).

Harpy Hybrid Review

Utsanga

black text on white ground with partial green underlineVery pleased to have three of my found poems published in the Italian online journal Utsanga. A journal of the liminal — the threshold between states of being — Utsanga favors the eclectic and experimental.

FERAL: A Journal of Poetry and Art

Hugely pleased to have two of my found poems in Issue 8 of FERAL: A Journal of Poetry and Art, pages 64 and 65. (Just received the hard copy of this impressive journal. It’s large — 8.25″ x 11.625″ — printed on heavy coated stock with lots of images.)

Sienna Solstice

In honor of the solstice, the new issue of Sienna Solstice is out today, with one of my found poems included (on page 30). Always happy to be part of the celebration, though it seems somehow wrong that today should initiate the shortening of the days.

After the Pause

The West Review

Very pleased that The West Review has published two of my found poems in Issue 5, here and here. Thanks so much to founder and editor-in-chief Despy Boutris!

Pocket Lint

Well, here’s a quirky little ‘zine that has included three of my found poems in its inaugural issue. Pocket Lint is “a new little lit magazine of short form poems/poetics” published twice a year in a print run of 321 copies (I received numbers 57 and 79). It’s the brainchild of Warren Dean Fulton out of British Columbia and is itself a sort of collage. It’s an honor to have my work rubbing shoulders with so many poets whose names and work I’ve known for so long.

solstice anthology

Enormously pleased to have two poems in the hot-off-the-press anthology, Solstice: Light & Dark of the Salish Sea (Chuckanut Sandstone Press). Edited by Carla Shafer, the collection features the work of 29 poets in two sections, Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice. I have a poem in each section and will be reading the summer poem as part of the online book launch on Sunday, April 11, 2021, at 7:00pm Pacific. The reading is free on Zoom, but advance registration is required. Would love you to join us (and I’ll be reading second, so don’t be late!).

Solstice is available for purchase through Village Books.

Entropy: The Birds

I am always thrilled when Entropy: The Birds accepts my work for publication. Today, they’ve published three of my found-bird poems along with a gorgeous raven photo by Joe Meche. (There’s a little heart below the poems and bio. If you like the poems, I’d be hugely grateful if you’d click it. Thanks.)

Lammergeier

Very pleased to have a found poem, night, in Issue 9 of Lammergeier.

(The high-mountain-dwelling lammergeier, also known as Bearded Vulture, Gypaetus barbatus, is held sacred by Tibetans, has a 9-foot wingspan, and eats primarily bones, which it drops from a great height to reveal the delicious marrow.)

tonight.

Should you find yourself otherwise unengaged this evening, Friday, March 26, 2021, at 7:00pm Pacific, Zoom on over to RASP, the Redmond Association of Spokenword, where I’ll be holding forth as the evening’s featured poet. On offer will be some found poems and some conventional-form poems, plus some conversation and a chance to share your own poem(s) during the open-mic portion of the evening. Please join me! (Zoom link here.)
