I’m honored to have my poem “Kintsugi” included in The Ekphrastic Review. Kintsugi is the Japanese practice of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with precious metals. Many thanks to editor Lorette C. Luzajic!
It’s been a quiet summer for me in publications, but I’ve been writing new poems, polishing a manuscript, and cranking out submissions. I’m looking forward to eight poems appearing in wonderful homes this fall and winter: The Ekphrastic Review; Menacing Hedge; the Aurorean; Forklift, Ohio; Whale Road Review, and Chiron Review (listed in order of scheduled publication). It’s my first appearance in Forklift, Ohio, and I’m very excited to be included. The five other journals have published my work in the past. I’m very grateful for their continued support — they feel like my poetry homes.
I’m also happy to be participating in two reading series: Saturday September 22 at 7 p.m., the Lowry’s Lodge series at the Continuum for Creativity in Westbrook, Maine, and Monday October 1 at 9 p.m., Word Portland at LFK in Portland, Maine.
The end of summer is always a little sad, but fall is my favorite season. Wishing you a wonderful autumn!
