Thank you to Don Kingfisher Campbell and Spectrum for allowing me to contribute to something I care a great deal about:
I have a new essay on teaching, children, and adults up at Childreach:
Delighted to learn that the Berlin, Germany-based The Wild Word will be publishing my poems “Springtime in Washington” and “Give a poor man a fish” later this spring.
When the poems appear I will post a link here.
I was pleased to learn that The Blue Nib is putting out their first print anthology and that I am included in it.
Very very happy to report Alien Pub will be publishing my poem “Runcibles” quite soon.
I got the word runcible -a made up word- from the children’s poem “The Owl and the Pussycat” by Edward Lear, which I have read to my daughter many times.
When the poem is up I will provide a link here.
This was a very pleasant surprise. I have never been a “featured poet” before. I am honoured and humbled, too.
I am delighted to report that The Black Lion Journal will be publishing 3 of my poems in their next collection. The pieces, “Jeremiah’s Jeremiad,” “Tribunes” and “American promises” are all poems I wrote to address the current “American moment.” I am honoured that they will be featured and will post the link when they appear.
