October 23, 2021 – Poems “Blue Light”, “Evening Machines”, “Street Flowers”, and “Sepscendence” accepted at Horror Sleaze Trash for reprint (publication date TBD). Always excited to have my work appear at HST, which has to be one of my favorite lit mags EVER! BIG thanks to EIC Arthur Graham for yet another acceptance and to Terror House Magazine and Alebrijes Review for originally publishing these pieces.
September 29, 2021 – So happy that Impspired Magazine accepted poems “Dandelion Wine” and “Fireflies” (both originally published at Lothlorien Poetry Journal) and “Sepscendence” (originally published at Alebrijes Review) for reprint, online, on December 1, 2021. They will also appear in the magazine anthology’s 7th edition (print) in January 2022. As usual, many thanks to Editor Steve Cawte for the acceptance and continued support.
August 24, 2021 – Great news today! One of my brand new poems, “Sepscendence”, was accepted for publication at Alebrijes Review in their inaugural issue. The theme for the first issue is “Fever Dream”. Sepscendence is a play on the words sepsis and transcendence, highlighting some very interesting moments during a past hospitalization for pneumonia and sepsis, where I hallucinated the majority of the time I was admitted. Pretty sure I saw God…or something God-adjacent. Many thanks to EIC Ren Koppel Torres for the acceptance and honor.
Just a bit about Alebrijes Review…
Alebrijes Review is a new literary magazine that aims to celebrate Latinx poetry, short fiction, visual art, and music. Alebrijes Review was named after Pedro Linares’ cartonería creations because our magazine is a home for the whimsical, the colorful, and the monstrous; because we love work that represents the complexity of our many cultures and experiences. Many people mistakenly believe that the Latino identity is a monolith, but we know better: we stand together because we are stronger as a whole, and we are united by a drive to create beauty in this world.
