Quail Bell published six of my poems over the past couple of months, all from the Poeming project, in which over 50 poets were each assigned one of Stephen King’s books and charged with the challenge of cratingÂ 31 found poems in the month of October. The poems Quail Bell selected were:
- Morning, Wrapped in Maple and Pine
- A Fallen Heaven
- A Wake
- I Have Tried to Explain
- A Last Missive
- and Student of More
In other awesome news, Zoetic Press has started a new podcast called, The Literary Whip. The podcast highlights poetry, fiction, and nonfiction that was rejected byÂ Nonbinary Review and other publication. This is work that almost made it past the slush pile to publication, but was ultimately rejected.
As an associate editor for Nonbinary Review, I was invited to be a guest of the podcast for two episodes. It was great fun speaking with Lise Quintana, podcast host and editor in chief ofÂ Nonbinary, aboutÂ â€œDear Firebirdâ€ by Becky dâ€™UgoÂ andÂ â€œNo wise fish would go anywhere without a porpoiseâ€ by Jane Wiseman, as well as about literature and the editing process in general. Go check them out.
