And so begins 2018…

I’m excited to say that 2018 has begun with the publication of three of my poems! (You’ll find them listed on the publications page.) Thanks to Anne Burke of The Prairie Journal,  and Bunny Iskov of Verse Afire, )

This looks to be a promising year as I complete the editing of Written Tenfold, an anthology of verse by poets from the Brooklin Poetry Society, I`m also busy working on revisions to a novel manuscript, as well as keeping up with my poetry practice. So 2018 has its work cut out for me!

And so, with the best of all New Year’s resolutions, I’m resolving as well to write a monthly blog post.

So here’s to 2018, to new ideas, and new literary adventures!
