The Local Train Magazine, Issue 1, April 2019

Excited to be part of the The Local Train Magazine’s inaugural issue!  Thank you to Shahadat Hossain Shaan, Founding Editor for publishing my poem, “All Good Things Gray.”  You can read this along with other fine work here, including work by fellow Alaskan poet Josh Medsker.  Check out submission guidelines as editors are currently gathering material for their next issue.

 

Snapdragon, Spring 2019

Happy to publish “Now” in the pages of Snapdragon:  A Journal of Art & Healing.  There are so many things to appreciate about this journal.  First, its editorial board is organized by women writers, including Editor-in-Chief Jacinta V. White.  The journal’s explanation behind its name carries an exquisite link to the writing process.  From the website:

At its deepest level, the Snapdragon flower essence helps the soul to distinguish its use of creative forces — especially those which radiate from the lower energy centers, and those which are used for spoken word. 

Finally, I love that when you publish with Snapdragon, you get to supply the journal with the email address of a friend.  They’ll then send a copy of the journal not only to you, as writer, but also your friend.

Blue Heron Review, Issue 11, Winter 2019
