Reading Writers at Work | Inside the Poem
So grateful to be included in this final 50th edition issue of Nerve Cowboy. What a great publication. It was one of those magazines I aspired to be in after my professor introduced me to it. So it was with great hope I stamped and mailed my last submission and with great joy months later I receieved an acceptance letter from them.
This year I had the good fortune to be a Pride Poet and write poems for people who called into the Pride Poet Hotline. I am pretty sure that writing a poem in five minutes is not one of my strengths, but it was fun and I met some lovely people on the phone. And yes, I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Here are a couple of the poems I wrote. Don’t judge. 😉
The inaugural issue of A Moon of One’s Own is out today! The editor, Shannon Phillip is amazing and has done a terrific job curating this first issue. And… I have three poems in it. Take a look here. But please look at the whole issue–it is luminous.
Silver Birch Press is a cool journal that puts out a prompt as a call for submissions and then curates the submissions into a series. I was inspired by this prompt, How to Heal the Earth, and then wrote Earthworks, click here to read.
Thank you to Lynne Thompson and Patricia Smith for accepting this poem in Spillway #29. Get your copies here!
