Happy to share some work that appears in the special feature of Poets/Editors in the Summer issue (Vol. 2.4, Summer 2018) of Sheila-Na-Gig. “To the Bare Salmonberry Branch in Cold Winter” and “Grief.” Always a joy to publish with Sheila-Na-Gig and to read the fine gathering of work here curated by Editor Hayley Mitchell Haugen and Associate Editor Jessica Higgins.

Kanika Lawton is the Editor-in-Chief of L’Éphémère Review, an online literary and art journal that explores, “the ephemeral, musings on the existential, and establishment of the eternal. We are fascinated with the interplay between memory and reality, truth and interpretation, perception and perspective, and the past, present, and future.” I am grateful to L’Éphémère Review for publishing “Care Of” in Issue IX: Dalliance.
The inaugural issue of Tilde: A Literary Journal just launched and I’m thrilled to find that my quirky poem “Cabin in the Woods” found a paper home among its pages! Thank you, editors, for including my work. You can read the issue and submit work here.
“Sheila-Na-Gig online publishes well-crafted free verse poetry. We especially seek poems with excellent imagery and a strong sense of voice.” You can learn more about submission guidelines and upcoming deadlines here.
Sam writes, “There is a real sense of place in Something Yet to Be Named, the first poetry collection by Kersten Christianson. That place is Alaska, and it is beautifully described — from the open sea, to the vast sky, to the mountainous landscape, to the summer and the berries it births. Sun or no sun, Alaska is clearly beautiful, and a much-loved home for this writer.”
Included in her generous review are snippets from “Elegy” and “Talisman.”
Thank you, Sam, for including this in the latest issue. You can take a peek at Issue 34/February 2018 here, or make purchase of the journal here.
Word Life is curated by Editor Elizabeth Gibson. February’s theme explores love, and includes two of my poems “Latitude” and “Heart Line.” Be sure to take some time to explore the sweet sampling of work found there.
Matt Potter is the founding editor of Pure Slush. His goal is to print “flash…without the wank.” Each publication contains a wide variety of flash fiction, non-fiction and poetry. Am over the moon to be included in not one, but two printings of Pure Slush: “Tall…ish” (Vol. 11, 2016) and Happy² (Vol. 15, 2018), the more recent of the two can be ordered here. Thank you, Matt, for including some of my work in the pages of Pure Slush.
Denise Powell is the founding editor of The Voices Project, a venue for women’s voices. As stated, “…when you empower a woman, you empower a family, a community, a nation…” Timely, this, with the second annual Women’s March happening this weekend. I am grateful to The Voices Project for including my poem “Kite Flying” in this project. Have you shared your voice yet?
