Quick Update

I’ve tried staging a love poem workshop two or three times and in all of those attempts, no one showed up. The one time I facilitated an open forum on getting poetry published, I had about 10 to 12 people come and the hour wasn’t long enough to answer all the questions the attendees have. I get the message: no one wants to learn how to write a love poem (at least in Orlando). And that’s o.k.


My next chapbook is coming soon from Choose the Sword Press. It’s a prequel to Bodies Made of Smoke.

It’s up on Goodreads. Feel free to add it over here.


I have two Yelp reviews over at SIMILAR : PEAKS.

I have three love poems as directed by various directors over at Hobart.

I also have a poem in the inaugural issue of Lockjaw Magazine. You can also read responses to the poem over at LunaLuna Magazine.
