Split Rock Review

Honored to have three of my found poems published in Split Rock Review issue 10.



Streetcake is an online magazine that publishes “exciting writing that is visual, innovative and experimental.” I’m very pleased that they’ve selected one of my found poems to appear in Issue 56. (More Streetcake on Facebook.)

and yet another…

Always surprised to discover that a poem has been published for some months. Here’s one in Jazz Cigarette #5 (publication subsequently renamed petrichor).

four more

yet more!

Delighted to have two of my found poems in issue 5 of Riggwelter, which definitely takes the cake for journal names. According to the press, riggwelter (verb) is “a dialect word from the North of England: a sheep, having fallen onto its back, being unable to right itself is said to be riggweltered (e.g., bloody thing’s riggweltered again).”

To see the poems, at the link, click through to pages 31 and 53.

Surprised to discover five of my found poems published in Permafrost Magazine 39.2. They were accepted back in April, but I wasn’t notified that they had been published. Happy discovery!
