“Working Through It” and “Losing You,” poems

Readers and Roses,

Life and Legends issue 3 has come out, and I am honored to have been included in this volume. Two of my poems, “Working Through It” and “Losing You,” appear alongside many other brilliant poets’ work, including Jenn Givhan, Latin@ and mama poet, and Lissa Kiernan, radiant poetess. It is humbling to stand in their wake.

Some New Poetry Publications

Dearest Readers and Roses,

Postcard Poems and Prose has published my poem “The Devil is In,” prettifying it into a beautiful postcard. I also wrote an article for Stillwater News Press, called Concerning Kids: Celebrate National Poetry Month This April, because I truly believe that poetry will save the world.
