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.)

One Sentence Poems

I love the online journal One Sentence Poems and am very grateful when they publish one of mine, including “It’s open,” which has just appeared. (Links to others in the sidebar at left.)

The Inflectionist Review

As promised, yet another poem published: “Lesson” appears in Issue 12 of The Inflectionist Review, edited by John Sibley Williams and A. Molotkov, and alongside numerous poets whose work I admire. Very grateful.

Claw & Blossom

After a quiet spell in February, it looks like there’s a little run of new publications showing up. Very happy to have my poem “Cabin” published in Issue 8 of Claw & Blossom.

Riddle with Arrows

In assembling the pandemic issue of Riddled with Arrows, editor Shannon Connor Winward created a choose-your-own-route-through-the-7-stages-of-isolation experience that begins on the RwA 4.1 page and allows you to meander through related batches of writing. My found poem appears on the Scavenge for food page and I’m honored to be along on the adventure.

A) GLIMPSE) OF)

Produced in Athens, Greece, and edited by Dimitra Ioannou, A) GLIMPSE) OF) has just published five of my found poems in the journal’s Feministic Series. Thank you, Dimitra!

Pamenar Press

Three more of my found poems have found a home at Pamenar Press, “an independent cross-cultural, multilingual, experimental publisher, based in the UK, Canada and Iran.” I’m honored.

Word For/Word

Very pleased that Word For/Word has muscled through against the odds and published five of my found poems. The pieces were submitted nearly a year ago for Volume 36, which was originally slated for summer. So here’s a little dose of summer for you. Thanks, WF/W!

Rise Up Review

In all the distractions of the day, I failed to notice that one of my found poems was published in the election-day issue of Rise Up Review. Thanks, belatedly, to the RUR team.

What Are Birds?

Not sure I can answer the question, but am nonetheless very pleased that What Are Birds? has included one of my found poems in the current combined 2.4/3.1 issue. Cover art by Mark Blickley.
