September 6, 2021 – Great news this morning! Two new poems, “Dandelion Wine” and “Life From a Garden Fence” were accepted at The Milk House (a rural writing collective) for publication on October 7, 2021. Very pleased about these acceptances due to these poems being a few in a series of bucolic-themed pieces that I crafted during the Tupelo Press 30/30 Project. This is a departure from my normal subject matter, so it is quite pleasing to see that others appreciate the work. Many thanks for Editor Ryan Dennis for the acceptance! Truly honored.
July 25, 2019 – New essay “Digging for Lost Temples”, a self-exploration of ethnic identity, accepted today at Drunk Monkeys today (publication date TBD). Many thanks to Kolleen Carney Hoepfner (Editor-In-Chief) and Matthew Guerruckey (Founder). Very excited about this opportunity as it is the first essay of mine to be accepted by a literary publication (i.e., outside The Good Men Project). Looking forward to writing many more in the future!
