Poem in Nightingale and Sparrow

My daughters playing in the snow many years ago.

My poem, “The Blizzard of ’96” is in the recently published Blizzard issue of Nightingale and Sparrow. Perfect timing! 😀 My thanks to EIC Juliette Sebock. Here’s a link to my poem, but please do read the rest of the issue, which is available online and in print.

Poems in Fevers of the Mind Poets of 2020

I apologize for posting across social media, but some people follow me only on this blog. I an honored to have three poems in David L. O’Nan’s massive (over 300 pages) anthology, Poets of 2020. There are so many wonderful poets in this volume–many well-known names! The book is available in several formats. Here’s the US link.

New Book Published: Sexual Harassment

I received copies of my book, Sexual Harassment: A Reference Handbook yesterday.  As you can imagine, I was overwhelmed with current news while writing this, but it is a reference book. (That means I do not give my opinion of certain people, but
I can include their words and behavior.) The book includes a brief history of sexual harassment and analysis, as well as a glossary, timeline, and resources. There is also one chapter of wonderful essays by women who have experienced sexual harassment. A couple of names you may have seen here on WordPress. If you read this book and feel inclined to give it a positive review, I would appreciate it. Of course, that holds true for any of my books! I know that the reference books are expensive, but when this current situation is over, please do consider recommending this book to your local public or school library. It would also be suitable for various resource centers.

 

The cats had to check out my new book, though of course, the box was much more interesting to them.  

Some people have already seen this news on Instagram or Twitter, but some people only follow me here, so I apologize for the cross-posting.

The morning moon hummed fiercely today in the heat. I will be staying inside and taking work breaks to read Issue 2 of Black Bough Poetry, “Lux Aeterna” –Eternal Light. It is filled with tributes to Apollo 11–breathtaking poems and wonderful artwork. Please do take a look.

I am thrilled to have two poems in this issue, “Moon Landing” and “Dark Matter.” Thank you to editor Matthew M C Smith (no relation, though my husband has some Welsh ancestry. . .) for selecting my poems and for editorial suggestions on “Dark Matter.”

These are the grown puppies mentioned in “Moon Landing”–a bit blurred, like a memory.

Two Poems in Wellington Street Review

I’m so thrilled to have two poems up in the first issue of Wellington Street Review. It is “a new quarterly journal specialising in creative responses to the past. ” This entire issue looks fabulous.  I appreciate the editorial kindness and dedication of those involved with this publication–so wonderful to work with them–and I thank them for publishing my poems The Pogrom and In Memoriam: Their Names .
