poet and author

Some new publications

I have recently had two poems published with reputable journals, and I have some more on the way. I have been slowly making progress on a new manuscript of poems, in which I’ve been reading through classic works of literature that I never took time to engage with in the past, and I write poems that respond to and communicate with those novels. It’s a fun project for me, and I am learning a lot, while also reading some of the best novels ever written.

At any rate, one of the poems from that project is here, published with As It Ought To Be Magazine. It’s a poem that was written in response to the Ernest Hemingway novel The Sun Also Rises.

The other published piece, was with a UK based journal called The Lake. They’ve published me before. They graciously reprinted a poem from my collection Corona, titled Fathoms of Mourning.

Thanks to the editors of both of these journals. And keep checking back for future updates, as I continue to get more of these poems out into the world.
