Poetry.  Photography.

-- The anthology My Cityline from Wingless Dreamer includes my poem "Watershed Trail."

- Snapdragon: A Journal of Art and Healing has published its spring 2022 issue including my poem "First Kiss," as well as poems by North Carolina writer-friends Margaret Tau and Kristie Williams. Beautiful photography too! My poem was born in a workshop with poet Ashley Lumpkin in which she introduced a poetic form of her own devising.

- Check out Red Fez! A funky site to find poems. Like mine: "Spilled Beer," inspired by hanging out with the Nexus Poets crew at Prohibition in New Bern.

- Both Sam Love, founder of Nexus Poets, and I have poems in the 10th issue of eno Magazine.So beautifully produced!

- Thanks to Press 53 for their series of prompts--always a creative challenge!—and to Waterwheel Review for making a home for a few of my orphaned 53-word efforts.

- In June, I was one of over 20 writers at "Meet the Author Day" in Chesterville, Maine (population 1,448). The event was to raise funds for the library. Great hospitality —homemade pasta salad and whoopie pies!—and interesting writers in all genres. I especially enjoyed meeting poet Richard Foerster and novelist Heather Morrison-Tapley.

News 2022

- Thanks to the 20th annual Goose River Anthology (published in Waldoboro, Maine) which will include my poem "To A Student Nearing Commencement." The earliest version of that poem was in 1987! Glad it'll see the light of day.

- There's a special happiness to hearing from Naugatuck River Review that one of my poems will be in that journal. It was founded by a colleague, Lori Desrosiers, at Westfield State University, where I used to work, and their publication of one of my poems 13 years ago helped keep me writing. "Look. Look." will be in the summer/fall 2022 issue.
