Welcome all you frozen souls looking for harbor this winter. I feel you.
I too, have been searching for home, for stability, for a comfort in stillness, and I have been largely failing, but there are some things that I am very happy and proud of nonetheless.
First of all, my poem, “Eruptions,” is now available for FREE from Reckoning Magazine. Check it out here.
As well, my poem, “Willowisp” came out from Star*Line in their Winter 2019 issue and is available for purchase here.
I also got my first story publication credit! It’s a small flash-fiction piece entitled “Sent by the Wisewoman” prompted by some photography by Kit Sora. It will be publicly available soon! You can see the announcement here.
Finally, and most excitingly, I was selected for an Ontario Arts Council (OAC) award! I’ve received $1500 to spend time putting together my first, FULL-LENGTH book of poetry, which is a dream come true. My goal is to finish the manuscript by August and then start the submissions process, and it will certainly involve some of my previously published poems such as “Apologies from the Moon.” Tentatively title “A REFUGE OF TALES,” it will be about the ways in which stories help and harm, include and exclude, and how we can change the world around us with their power.
