Creative Nonfiction has nominated my essay “The Animal in the Yard” from their summer 2017 “Adaptation” issue for a Puschart Prize. Many thanks to Hattie, Lee, and the rest of the good folks at this wonderful magazine.
Over at Jacket 2, Nathan Suhr-Sytsma has a lovely review of The Leaving and the other chapbooks in the New Generation African Poets Tatu release.
Kirkus Reviews has a lovely profile up of the anthology All the Women in My Family Sing, edited by Deborah Santana, in which my essay “What Is Said” appears.
“Donald Trump referred to Hillary Clinton as a “nasty woman” during one of the Presidential Debates–and women poets across the country responded with a vengeance. These poems of resistance to misogyny are powerful, moving, funny, and wise. Coeditors Bauer and Kane have assembled a rich collection of poems in this beautifully put together volume. I highly recommend this book.”--5 Star Review from Amazon.com
“What a fine anthology! Topical. Brilliant!”–-5 Star Review from Amazon.com
“This collection is so wonderful I hardly know where to start. It may be sufficient to say that as you read it you’ll laugh, cry, get in a rage, but above all rejoice about being a woman.”--5 Star Review from Amazon.com
“I love this book so much! It’s smart, sassy, and raw. The poets in this anthology are some of the most powerful feminist voices today at their finest. Julie Kane and Grace Bauer have put together one beautifully nasty collection of poems from a diverse group of women. It’s a testament to the power of poetry and women everywhere.”–5 Star Review from Amazon.com
Honored to have my poem “Job (War Survivor’s Guilt” in the Nasty Women Poets anthology edited by the wonderful Grace Bauer and Julie Kane.
I have a new essay at Creative Nonfiction Magazine. It’s not online, but you can look at a picture of the issue here. You can even buy it. Or you can go to a bookstore or library. They are both pretty great. You can discover all sorts of things.
I have a new poem at Foundry.
