I feel honored and grateful that the Los Angeles Times quoted from and briefly wrote about my poem “How I Fathom the Crash” in their August 29 article about Rattle’s Poets Respond series. Poets Respond is a wonderful weekly publication that gives a platform to poems written about and inspired by current events that occurred within the past week, and I am glad that the LA Times is giving this series the attention it deserves. To read the article, go here.
I’m excited to announce that four of my poems were accepted this week for publication. “My Father’s Haiku” and “Things I Know” will appear in the Fall 2014 issue of The Boiler Journal, and “Hardboiled” and “Alone Outside the Glass House” will appear in the Fall 2014 issue of Compose: A Journal of Simply Good Writing. I will be posting links to the poems once the issues are launched.
