Peeking Cat Anthology 2018

Editor Sam Rose does it again!  An amazing collection of work gathered in the 2018 Peeking Cat Anthology.  I am so happy to be published among friends:  Lisa Stice, Vivian Wagner, Eric Robert Nolan.  Thank you, Peeking Cat, for this fine collection and for including two of my poems, “Too Many Reasons Not to Go Home” and “Bouquet.”  Peeking Cat is on short hiatus, but look for it again in 2019.

 

Artemis Journal, Volume XXV, 2018

If you know me well, you know that I’m a huge supporter of women-driven publications.  Artemis Journal is such a gem.  First published in 1977 by Jeri Rogers, this year’s theme is “Women hold up half the sky.”  The material gathered within these pages is both thought-provoking and inspiring.  I am happy to be published alongside poets such as Natasha Trethewey, Nikki Giovanni and Lisa Stice.  Thank you, Artemis, for including my poem, “Jigsaw & Old Coat.”
