I am very pleased to share my essay, “Sugarloaf” which is at “The Write Life” today.
I am honored to have been able to contribute to “The Write Life,” the blog of The Blue Nib Magazine. You can read my piece here: https://thebluenib.com/spring/
My short fiction piece “Hopper” is now available in The Blue Nib no. 38. You can read it here: https://thebluenib.com/article/hopper-by-jeremy-nathan-marks/
I was pleased to learn that The Blue Nib is putting out their first print anthology and that I am included in it.
This was a very pleasant surprise. I have never been a “featured poet” before. I am honoured and humbled, too.
Today is a great writing day.
I just learned that three of my poems are going to appear in Volume IV of The Blue Hour Anthology. This is thrilling for so many reasons but not least because the three they chose are all very close to my heart:
1 poem is about Detroit; 1 poem is about the Funk Brothers; 1 poem is dedicated to my father and how I have watched him provide loving care and undying loyalty to his mother who will be turning 100 this June.
And then I found out that over at The Blue Nib they are taking four more of my poems, including one I wrote about Charlottesville, two I wrote about Detroit, and one I wrote about mourning an abused horse.
Like I said, today has been a great writing day . . . and a great day overall. When the poems are available I will share links here.
