“None of the Above”

None of the Above is a “short sheet” I am writing/publishing which connects in many ways with the pedagogical philosophy I use here at DEMOI. You can read it/follow it here:

Essayist

I am pleased to announce that beginning this month I will be writing a regular essay on politics, culture, society, and history for The Black Lion Magazine.  I have two pieces that I am putting the finishing touches on right now and which should be appearing soon. The first is a longer version of my editorial on Coretta Scott King, which appeared in the London Free Press last month: http://lfpress.com/opinion/columnists/opinion-coretta-scott-kings-work-also-worthy-of-celebration

The second piece is an essay I am writing on the connection between Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy, two men committed to fighting poverty and war and who were deeply committed to Civil Rights. As you know, they were both murdered within two months of one another in the spring of 1968.

I am delighted to be a part of The Black Lion and honored to have a platform for my writing.

Unlikely Stories is publishing 3 of my poems (July 1st, 2018)

I was very happy to learn that New Orleans-based Likely Stories will be publishing three of my poems, all of them written in a satirical vein.

The pieces are “Noble savage,” “Dowry,” and “Blow it out your blowhole.”

I am incredibly pleased that I will be able to say that I published a poem called “Blow it out your blowhole.” That made my day, week, and month.
