The Life of the Party is this issue’s particular theme and within it I am so happy to find a home for my poem, “Elixir.” It needed a destination such as this. Thank you to the editorial staff for including my work in the winter issue.
Thank you to editor Monique Berry for including my poems “December 30th” and “Tonight” in the current issue of Halcyon Days. Check out that aurora-splashed cover.
The first detail I noticed about Venus Magazine is its welcome:
Venus Magazine is an international literary and arts publication on print and online. Venus is dedicated to the beauty of the ethereal, the celestial light of words and strokes. We look for softness, yearn for light. Think fairy pink slippers, tinsel and dust. Think candle wax dripping, moon beams skimming still water. We want darkness, light, softness, pain, and magic. We want the beauty but also the bruises, the songs that ring and the notes that scratch. We want your work.
Such an inviting call for possible publication! I thank the editors of Venus Magazine for including my poems “Sound,” “Light Catcher” & “Instead, a Sign” in their current issue. Thrilled, and thankful.
Thank you to the editors of Midnight Circus/EAB Publishing for including my work in the Winter 2017 issue. The journal is available for purchase through Amazon.
Editor and poet Hayley Mitchell Haugen (What the Grimm Girl Looks Forward To, Finishing Line Press, 2016) co-founded the print version of Sheila-Na-Gig in 200o with Kristine Sanders. This venture published 14 volumes of the journal along with three chapbooks, featuring over 400 poets and awarding $2000 in contest prizes.
Sheila-Na-Gig re-opened as an online journal and publication venue in the fall of 2016. I am grateful to have published work in both the fall and now winter issues of Sheila-Na-Gig. Follow the link and you’ll find my poems “Le Creuset,” “Wooden Boardwalk,” “Moon” & “At the Southern Entrance of Lynn Canal.” I am over the moon to learn that “Le Creuset” was listed as the Winter 2016 Poetry Contest Winner.
Thank you to editor and poet Hayley Mitchell Haugen for sharing my work with a wider audience of readers!

Thank you to guest editor Tanaya Winder for including my poem, “My Daughter Teaches Me to Read a Poem,” in the Fall 2016 issue of Yellow Medicine Review. It is such an honor to see this poem included in the #NoDAPL section of this journal dedicated to the theme of Resilience.
Daphne Magazine‘s first issue just went live and I am grateful that my poem “This Pot” was offered a space for publication.
Allegro Poetry Magazine is an online magazine based in the UK and edited by British poet, Sally Long. Thank you to Sally Long and Allegro for including my poem “Road Trip” in this themed travel issue.
Thank you to co-editors Sarah Page and Elizabeth Pinborough for including two of my poems (“The Port au Port Peninsula” and “Where Celsius and Fahrenheit Meet”) in the current issue of Young Ravens Literary Review.
About this lovely issue, the editors write:
In the fifth issue of Young Ravens Literary Review, authors and artists explore the four elements of fire, water, earth and air. Imagination explodes from the embers of dead stars as we dive into our own humanity through the many ways we both lose and find ourselves in the natural world: A bonfire entwines two lives in the darkness with the illusion of age and the promise of growing old with a loved one. Water rolls broken shells smooth as our own jagged edges are challenged and cleansed by the tides of time. Stones strain with the weight of a sleeping giant, veins pumping with fresh snow melt. A man follows the bliss of an unruly breeze into wild solitude—inviting only the reader to follow.
Thank you to the editors of Moledro Magazine for sharing my work in their latest issue. Happy to read “In Search of the Poet I & II,” “Sometimes” and “Morality” in this fine collection of writing.
