Poets Reading the News

Special thanks to Elle Aviv Newton, Dori Mondon, and Poets Reading the News!

One Sentence Poems, again (and again)

One Sentence Poems has selected two of my short (one-sentence) poems for publication: “Song” and “Resolution.” Really appreciate the careful work of editors Dale Wisely, Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco, and Tony Press.

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

Lines + Stars

Thanks to Lines + Stars for including my poem “Ten” in the Winter/Spring issue on the theme anniversaries. (And thanks, too, to whom it was written.)

Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs is a wonderful online literary publication with a twist. Each featured text is written in response to a previously published piece. If you click the three dots below the text (or, in the case of my found poem, below the image), you’ll be taken to the poem that inspired it. The three dots (the breadcrumbs) reach backward in time (five years, in this case) to connect a long series of linked poems and prose. I’m very happy to be part of this collection.

new poem

Sometimes poems get accepted by a journal and then are published with no further fanfare. Just discovered that my poem “Paying Attention” was quietly published in E.Ratio Poetry Journal, issue 29. Who needs fanfare? Very grateful.

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.

The Odd

and yet again…

Kind of surprising when the announcements come in one after the other, but I’m willing to accept it as gifts of auspicious beginnings for 2020. Thanks to Young Ravens Literary Review, which has published two of my found-raven poems in issue 11.

That’s Dayna Patterson’s “Heart Beet” on the cover. Swoon.

and the first for 2020…

An auspicious beginning: a collection of “month” poems from right hand pointing that includes two of mine: April and May.

This is the third time Dale Wisely and team have selected my work for publication and I’m deeply grateful. (And also to find myself in such fine company, including Susan J. Erickson.)

one more for 2019

This has been a good year for getting my found poems published and here’s one more for 2019, out today: Literary Orphans 39.

Each issue of LO honors a musician whose grit and energy is admired by the editors. This one salutes Kim Shattuck, and here’s Mike Joyce’s Letter from the Editor with more about Kim.

I’m grateful to Mike and the Literary Orphans team for including three of my found poems in this issue. And I’m grateful to you for following my posts and offering your Likes and Comments.

I hope 2020 brings the clear vision the number suggests. Happy New Year!

Leveler

Honored that the editors of Leveler have selected my poem “The peony” for publication. Each poem they choose is featured for a week along with the editors’ comments in a section they call levelheaded. The poet rarely gets to hear what the editors are thinking, so this is a bonus, to say nothing of the considerable extra effort undertaken. Thank you, Leveler!

Clade Song

Very pleased that Tim Kahl and Joshua McKinney have published two of my poems in issue 9 of Clade Song: Asteroidea and Collocation. As a bonus, Clade Song offers poem-specific related links when you click on the animals in the sidebars. Such links are provided for each poem in the issue — quite a demonstration of above-and-beyond commitment by the editors!

Here’s Wikipedia on clade: A clade, also known as monophyletic group, is a group of organisms that consists of a common ancestor and all its lineal descendants, and represents a single “branch” on the “tree of life.”
