The Beauty of Print

There’s something special about print poetry journals. In a world dominated by screens and clicks, holding a physical object in my hands and reading from it feels grounding and nourishing. Publishing print journals has always been challenging, and it’s more challenging now than ever with dramatically increased paper costs. So, I’m especially appreciative to have my work included in two fine print journals recently. San Pedro River Review, based in California, has been publishing poetry for 14 years. “Flammable” is my third appearance in SPRR. Frost Meadow Review has been publishing in Maine for 5 years. “Stargazers” and “Widow’s Weeds” mark my fourth appearance in FMR. I appreciate these wonderful print journals’ support over the years. Thank you!

“Torquemada” and “A Bloodless Thing” in Frost Meadow Review

I’m honored to have two poems in the new Frost Meadow Review. “Torquemada,” which received the Editor’s Choice Award, is on p. 9. “A Bloodless Thing” is on p. 49. Many thanks to editor Emily JT Matthews, who created this free online edition of her wonderful print journal to keep it going during the pandemic. It’s filled with beautiful and vital poetry and art.
