Dear Visitors to My Blog,

Why hello. I was just informed this morning that there are a couple of spots left in my generative poetry workshop at Poets House that starts on Saturday APRIL 12th.  It's a 6 week course. So jazzed.  Were you ever dreaming of taking a poetry workshop? Do you know anyone who would like to take a poetry workshop?  Look no further. This class has EVERYTHING.  Well, not everything, but it has me and a bunch of other students.  Here's a link to register & to learn more.

Poetry Forum: Roberto Montes and Amy Lawless

I'm delighted to read at the New School tomorrow at a poetry forum with Roberto Montes, moderated by Mark Bibbins.  RSVP & let me know I'll see you?   I don't think you'd have to pay the 5 dollars.

Poems Online (update)

oh look some poems recently published:

A poem titled "Neglect Emotionally" was published  in Poetry Crush's Every Day Is Valentine's Day issue, vol 1.  (Read the whole issue 2 volumes! Such great Valentine's and anti-V Day responses.

Two poems "Engage Physically" and "Unwrap a Tidy World to Reveal a Messier One" were published in notnostrums, issue 9.   Such cool work by some of my friends and some poets I admire.
