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.

EAP: The Magazine

Always a happy surprise when a poem is accepted, and another surprise to find that it has been published without further notice! Thanks to Exterminating Angel Press: The Magazine for including one of my found poems in the Spring 2020 issue.

poem

Overtaken by a rash of rhyming and curse as a prompt, I wrote this poem in the other Before-time: before The Election, before 45 was a poisonous number.

Thanks to editor Jerome Betts and Lighten Up Online, it has now found its way into Issue 50 and the world alongside much rhyming, much wry commentary, and some very clever poems.

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.

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.

Psaltery & Lyre

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

District Lit

Two of my poems, “Distracted by the stars” and “Self portrait,” have just been published in District Lit. Founded and edited by Diana Smith Bolton, District Lit publishes “writing that smashes down the borders in which we district our lives.” I am grateful to have my work selected.

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.

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.
