New Work in Sonora Review and Raleigh Review, and a Chicago Reading (January 7, 2020)
My peoples, hi.
I’m excited to share that my poem “At The Bar” was named a finalist for the Laux/Millar Poetry prize, and appears in the current Fall ’19 issue of Raleigh Review. A meridian from my forthcoming chapbook was named runner-up for Sonora Review’s Poetry Contest, and appears in their double issue Desire/Doubt (issues 75/76). I’m in the “Doubt” portion here, and totally okay with that. Pay ’em a visit to get your copies.
A big thanks to the kind folks at The Meadow for nominating my meridian “41.9740° N, 87.6782° W” for a 2019 Pushcart Prize.
2019 has been a helluva work year, ready for a few weeks off before the slipstream of the next decade. 2020 starts with new work forthcoming in Terrain.org and RHINO. And for my Chicago peoples, I’ll be reading at the Tuesday Funk series on January 7th at the Hopleaf, 7pm. I hope you can join me.
