Book Contract: Signed

Over the moon!  Aldrich Press (an imprint of Kelsay Books) has accepted my manuscript, Something Yet to Be Named, for publication.  I am thrilled that Aldrich Press has offered me this opportunity to read this work in book form.  I am also grateful for mentors and friends who showed me the trailhead.  Will keep you posted with further details as they arrive!

Until then, this, pulled from the abstract of my thesis:

Something Yet to Be Named is a collection of poetry exploring both the literal and metaphorical landscapes and borders of northern migrations. These poems spring from places often wild and remote, from the dwellings of heart and hearth. The manuscript explores the rocky coastline and sea of southeast Alaska, and forays north that the writer celebrates, and returns to, regularly. The critical essay, The Long Journey Home: Poetry of the Circumpolar North, considers the influences of the Japanese poet Bashō upon the northern poets John Haines and Tom Sexton. The essay additionally reflects upon “Coming to Alaska” stories as a journey archetype.
