The title sort of gave it away, but my poem “Sixteen” was a semi-finalist in Crab Creek Review‘s contest, along with some thirty-odd other poems selected out of over 2,000 submitted. It was additionally chosen for publication, so even though the judge didn’t pick “Sixteen” as a winner, I am still feeling pretty good about it!
Congrats to winner Connie Post! I look forward to reading her poem “Gardening” in the next issue of Crab Creek Review.
In other news, my copy of Women Arts Quarterly arrived with my poem “Everything is Breaking.” A copy is just $7 including shipping, and there is some wonderful work in there! I feel so lucky to be included.
Further, The Orison Anthology is now available for pre-order, containing my poem “I Want to Write a Memoir,” which Rhino nominated for inclusion. I didn’t know much about the project, but when I saw the list of who was included in the book I may have done a back flip. I’m over the moon about the editors selecting my poem among those by greats. A great thank you to them.
