November 16, 2021 – Excited to announce that I will participate, as part of a select 24, in Poetry in Pajamas‘ 2022 season (hosted courtesy of Sundress Publications). My Facebook Live reading is scheduled for July 3, 2022, featuring poems such as “Frozen Charlotte” (originally published at Cajun Mutt Press), “Dandelion Wine” (originally published at The Milk House), and “Boy with a Box Full of Wasps” (scheduled for publication December 2021 at Beir Bua Journal). Should be good fun.
September 26, 2021 – Woke up to amazing news this morning! Beir Bua Journal accepted three new poems, “Boy with a Box Full of Wasps”, “Son Rise”, and “Raspberry Bushes”. Was happy to hear the news as I had just submitted last night (I love expedited submissions). Decided to keep some of the ‘edge’ from “Cough Syrup”, “Blood Honey”, “3 AM”, and “Dopamine” (soon to be published at Fugitives and Futurists) going a bit longer with “Boy…” and “Son…”. “Raspberry Bushes” is one of many bucolic-themed pieces that explores the ‘black and white’ of life but with lascivious undertones (I am quite fond of all these, actually). Publication scheduled for December 10, 2021. A huge THANK YOU to Publishing Editor Michelle Maloney King for the very quick acceptance!
