March News

Hi, folks! This month, my work appeared in three publications.

First, my poem, "Days of Bread and Razors" was one of six featured on the UK website, Two Lungs Publication for their International Women's Day Special Edition. It's a poem based on the experience of a woman I knew who had gone through a terrible marriage and an equally terrible divorce. Read it here.

Willawaw Journal included my poem, "Montego Bay." This poem was inspired partially by the lovely poetry prompt they put out with their submission call, written by Poet Laureate Paulann Petersen, and in part from an actual trip to Jamaica my husband and I took. If you're new to this blog, you may not know that my husband is a kidney transplant patient. Read it here.

And finally, my work has made its second appearance over on Duane's PoeTree Blog. This time, he published "Retconning," which was previously published in the magazine, Ramingo's Porch. Read it here.

Also, I'm always pleased to share reviews. Here's one I got on West Side Girl & Other Poems over on Amazon:

Thank you, dear reader! And thanks to all of you who stop by my blog every now and then.

Next month, I'll be doing a review of Pat Durmon's new poetry book, Women, Resilient Women. If you haven't checked out her work yet, she's a wonderful poet with several titles available on Amazon.
