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).

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!

A Quiet Courage

Very pleased to have three of my found poems selected for publication on A Quiet Courage. The editor, Clara Ray Rusinek Klein, took the time to browse through chocolate is a verb and select the three found poems she wanted! I am so grateful.

and this…

Honored to have my poem “Slough Music” (inspired by the painting Salish Atlas #104 by Tyree Callahan) selected for publication in Washington 129, an anthology of poems collected and curated by State Poet Laureate Tod Marshall.

The official book launch was this week at the Washington State Capitol and a series of readings will be held around the state in the coming months. Watch the Washington Poet Laureate events page for information on upcoming readings. Copies of Washington 129 will be available at readings and through Amazon (though not quite yet).
