September 12, 2019 – Thrilled to have three of my haikus, “Solace #2”, “Contentment”, and “Pyre”, up at The Elixir Magazine in their September issue. Also, I am happy to report that I have accepted the position of Poetry Co-Editor at the magazine and will be assisting Poetry Editor Maryam Quereshi in her tireless efforts to bring Elixir readers some of the most amazing verse out there. This is quite the honor, especially since I will be wrapping up my first year with Elixir in a few months as an Editor (poetry, CNF, and fiction) and Artist-in-Residence. Many thanks to Founder & Editor-in-Chief Esra AlNaggar for the opportunity and all her support!
Great way to meet 2020!!!
May 5, 2019 – The Elixir Magazine, one of my absolutely FAVORITE literary mags (and not just because I am an editor/writer there), reprinted six of my previously published haiku (from Indelible Fingerprints [Alien Buddha Press]) in their May 2019 issue:
“Angels in the Morning” (originally published at Expat Press)
“As I Wake” (originally published at Expat Press)
“Gossip” (originally published at Terror House Magazine)
“Epiphanies” (originally published at The Ugly Writers)
“Fireflies” (originally published at Expat Press)
“Gin & Tonic” (originally published at Expat Press)
These ten “little darlings” will appear some time today. This feels especially good since I am currently working on content for my second book, which will be a collection of haiku poetry. I am all about haiku right now. The May issue is an especially special one as it is focused ENTIRELY on literature. Looking forward to get back to editing for the June issue. So glad Elixir has continued to support my work and to continually be an “Artist in Residence”.
