Heron Tree

I have so enjoyed working as an editor for the Heron Tree volume 5 edition.  I learned so much from reading submitted poems!  And realized what a LOT of work being an editor is for a literary journal.  The people I worked with are such thoughtful, caring readers of poetry.  It really impressed me.  Anyway, as a sort of thank you, the founding editors of Heron Tree, Chris Campolo and Rebecca Resinski published a poem of mine (and Matthew Burns, the other editor for volume 5) and is up right now.  Thank you to these fabulous editors for letting me being an editor for this year and for publishing this poem!

A Redheaded Stepchild

I have a new poem published in the fabulous Redheaded Stepchild Magazine, whose mission is to only publish poems that have been rejected before.  I love that concept!  It is such a beautiful journal as well.  This poem of mine had been previously rejected by Thrush Magazine, a journal I hope to get into one day.

My poem, "Do Not Resuscitate," was the contest runner-up and is up now at the Hospital Drive website.  This poem pretty much wrote itself, as what happens in the poem happened almost exactly in real life.

I have two poems up--one about my ovaries--yay!!--and one about a rather feminist Cinderella, at Rag Queen Review.  Be sure to check out the fabulous poems by Alessandra Bava and Sarah Nichols.

The Indianapolis Review

I've got a poem in the brand spanking new journal The Indianapolis Review.  It's a gorgeous journal with fabulous artwork, a conversation with Adrian Matejka, and other poems by really fantastic poets.  One really nice thing that happened:  someone happened to really like my line "peonies that could fill bras" and drew an amazing and beautiful rendition of that image and shared it with me on Facebook!  How cool is that?!?

Crab Creek Review Finalist!

I'm very excited to share that my poem, "Self-Portrait as Seven Deadly Sins," is a finalist in the poetry contest at Crab Creek Review!  Diane Seuss was the contest judge and wrote very nice things about my poem as well as the winner and other finalist that you can read here.  I absolutely adore this journal and am so pleased to be part of it.  You should get a subscription to the magazine so you can read the wonderful work they publish.

My "Self-Portrait as Tide Pool" is up at a very new journal, The Curve.  I'm super excited to be the first featured poet!  Hope you enjoy.
