Poetry

This year I had the pleasure of seeing my chapbook, Notwithstanding, make its way into the world. It can be had from Kelsay Books. The editors have gathered some really wonderful stuff over there, especially if you are into formal verse. It’s well worth a leisurely browse.

Poems out in the Wild

If you see the title of the poem linked, that means it’s available on the Web (true, alas, of only a few). Links to the magazines and journals (which I’ll add in time) lead to some lovely venues that are well worth giving a long look!
