Good News Department

I'm delighted to be the Featured Poet at Poetry Southeast. The feature includes three sample poems from each of my two books. What Feeds Us is represented by "Pyromania," "Invective Against the Bumblebee," and "Linguini." Eve's Red Dress is represented by "The Missing Wife," "Last Dance," and "My Husband Discovers Poetry." So click the link and check it out! A review of What Feeds Us will appear in the fall issue which should be available in a few weeks.

I also have poems in two recently released anthologies. "Pastiche for a Daughter's Absence" appears in Family Pictures: Poems & Photographs Celebrating Our Loved Ones. Edited by Kwame Alexander, the collection is exactly what its title says it is. Poets include Barbara Crooker, Tony Medina, Karla Huston, Shin Yu Pai, Nikki Giovanni, Susan Rich, and Lucille Clifton.

Two of my poems, "First Cold" and "Her Daughter's Feet," appear in White Ink: Poems on Mothers and Motherhood, edited by Rishma Dunlop. Here I'm in the good company of such poets as Adrienne Rich, Jean Valentine, Martha Silano, Ann Fisher-Wirth, Molly Peacock, Joy Harjo, and Alicia Ostriker.
