Happy to see “Da Eye Wife / Woods Number 1” found a home this morning among the fine e-pages of Foxglove Journal. Thank you to Editor Elizabeth Gibson for including this work. The title, interestingly, is one borrowed from a Shooglenifty song. The poem could also be read as a companion to another poem I wrote in the fall titled, “Cèilidh for Angus” which will be published in both Wild Musette and Picaroon Poetry this spring.
And because it is April 1st, National Poetry Month, I’d like to encourage you to check out an array of poetry collections I’m currently perusing. Happy poetry!

A surprise arrival in the mail today with my contributor’s copy of the San Pedro River Review. Thank you to editors Jeffrey & Tobi Alfier for including two of my poems, “Quartz” & “Resolve.” I must also disclose a moment of writing star crush in that Naomi Shihab Nye’s poem, “Get-Away Car, United States, 2017” is also included in this issue and located not too many pages away. Wonderful surprise on so many levels and I am excited to make this my weekend reading.
Thank you to the editors of Inklette for including my poem “Inventory” and audio recording in Issue #4, along with a handful of photos I took while visiting author and artist Vivian Faith Prescott (Planet Alaska) at her family’s fishcamp in Wrangell, Alaska a few summers ago. Enjoy the sweet array of writings included in this fine issue. As indicated by its byline, Inklette truly is “for the ink-hearted.”
Such an honor that two of my poems have published in the latest issue of 13 Chairs. Here, you’ll read “Silver Trail, Yukon” and “Raiding the Mountain Ash.” Vivian Faith Prescott also has work published in this issue, two stories titled “The First Assimilated Sami in the World” and “First Contact in Lituya Bay Revisited.” I am so appreciative of northern publications!
Cirque was founded in 2009 by Anchorage poet Mike Burwell and is edited by both Mike Burwell and poet Sandra Kleven. Published in Anchorage, Alaska, Cirque gathers and publishes poetry of the North Pacific Rim: Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Hawaii, Yukon Territory, Alberta, British Columbia, and Chukotka.” I love this journal for so many reasons, but certainly for the fact that publishing in its pages feels like home. Thank you, editors, for including my poem “Goose & Grove” in this fine winter issue which is viewable both online and in print.
