Sharing a little bit of news

It’s been a while, and as summer begins, I’ve had my nose in books, reading, writing, and even working on some new curriculum, too. That said, I want to share some good news.

First, I was just informed by the managing editor of Crab Orchrad Review, that my latest book of poems, Waiting for the Dead to Speak, won the 2017 Devil’s Kitchen Reading Award for poetry! As part of the award, I will be attending a literary festival at the university to partake in  panel and reading!

Some other news: many thanks to Jason Allen for this thoughtful review of my work that he published in the new issue of The Paterson Literary Review. You can read it here.

Lastly, Two Hawks Quarterly published two of my poems in the most recent issue, which you can read here.
