October 23, 2021 – Poem “Fireflies” will be featured at Synkroniciti Magazine on November 30, 2021 (in issue #10) as the winner of their ‘Transcend’ Poetry Contest.
Synkroniciti Magazine says, “Synkroniciti is honored to select Texan poet David Estringel’s “Fireflies” as the winner of our “Transcend” poetry contest. Lush and vulnerable, “Fireflies” invites us to gaze in wonder at the joy of childhood–that brief time when we are carefree and unaware of sorrow. Hope, memory, and regret weave themselves together in a bittersweet tribute to playfulness. David’s poetry is full of sensual music that celebrates the simple miracles of being alive, all the while acknowledging the agony of their inevitable passing.”

October 22, 2021 – It’s after 3 AM and I was awoken by an Instagram alert from Fugitives & Futurists that my poems “Blood Honey”, “Cough Syrup”, “3 AM”, and “Dopamine” were just published online. Loving how they presented the material. So glad to finally see these bad boys out and about and beyond thankful for F&F for seeing what I see in them. Love it when that happens!
