Some New Words

I want to give a shout-out and thank you to The Schuylkill Valley Journal and Glassworks for publishing some of my new work. The Schuylkill Valley Journal published my essay “Revisiting Emerson: Why His Ideas on Genius Matter Now.” The essay was written before and after the election, in response to the international surge of right-wing populism. More so, the essay explores some of Emerson and Thoreau’s key ideas about protest and the American tradition. The essay can be read online here, and it will appear in print this summer.

Glassworks literary magazine published my poem “I Go Back to January 2015” in the new spring print and online issue. You can read the entire issue here. I encourage you to consider subscribing to either or both magazines, as they are two of my favorites in the tri-state area.
