“The spring issue of fws is an experiment in “evolutionary-lit . . .Unlike a formal Renga, however, in which poets write only a few lines to add to previous lines/stanzas, which then, all together, become the whole poem, we will be writing an entire issue of whole poems together, so it is an improvisational collection becoming!”
Charlotte Hamrick and I have had our poems added to this beautiful ongoing poetic collaboration. You can read more about it, and find out how to submit your own verses here.
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.
As a lead-up to the launch of their Renaissance issue on May 16, Nightingale and Sparrow has been posting a different micropoem each day on social media. Thank you to editor-in-chief Juliette Sebock for selecting my poem, “Greensleeves Replies.” You can see it here.
I’m delighted to have a poem in the December issue of Ghost City. My thanks to Justin Karcher for giving it a home.
