Angle 8 Live!

Does it get any better than this? My poem “Epithalamion” is the final poem in the new issue of Angle Poetry which just went live. It’s a fabulous issue with many of the very best poets contributing, so it is truly exciting to be in it.

Note there is also an ekphrastic supplement with its own Harry Potter secret link about halfway through, which will lead you to even more delights, including a selection from an illustrated bestiary. Oh, those modern beasts! If you love poetry, you will love this!

Three Poems in Think!!

Three of my poems have been published in Think: A Journal of Poetry, Criticism, and Reviews — a truly wonderful print magazine. Including my first published Sestina, “Control.” Now that is indeed a thrill! A few years ago I went through a rather long Sestina-writing phase (possible sign of literary OCD). This was written after I stopped, with this one glorious exception. Thanks to David Rothman, Susan Spear, and all the excellent editors for putting together such a truly fantastic journal. I’m so proud and honored to be among the contributors, with so much amazing work! Subscription and submission info about Think can be found here.

My Review of The Lillian Trilogy published!!

Autostraddle has published my review of Mary Meriam’s comprehensive poetry collection The Lillian Trilogy here! It’s a fantastic book for anyone to read, a delight. Feminist, Lesbian, Sensual, full of subtle and penetrating rhyme and rhythm, seething in its exposure of injustice and moving in its declarations of pain and sorrow. Check it out!
