Though it wasn’t ultimately selected, I’m honored that Catafalque, my third book manuscript, just earned a distinguished mention from Tupelo Press in last summer’s open reading period.
My poem “Seamus Heaney in Community College Summer School” appears in the latest installment of Rappahannock Review (issue 4.1, Fall 2016).
I briefly review five recent poetry titles in the new December issue of Plume, just in time for the holiday gift-giving season: Hera Lindsay Bird’s Hera Lindsay Bird, Michelle Bitting’s The Couple Who Fell to Earth, Bruce Bond’s Black Anthem, Aracelis Girmay’s The Black Maria, and Connie Wanek’s Rival Gardens.
I’m excited to have three new poems in the latest issue of Connotation Press: An Online Artifact (Vol. VIII, Issue II). Special thanks are due to John Hoppenthaler for including them in his November congeries.
