I want to say thanks and happy 20th anniversary to Northern Michigan’s Dunes Review. I’m proud to be included.
Thanks to Jeanne Wagner at California Quarterly for including two of my poems in the latest issue:
Two new poems in the latest Chariton Review from Truman State University. Many thanks to Barbara Smith-Mandell (and Harry Truman).
Looking over the Spring/Summer issue of the resurrected lit magazine december, a thing of beauty. Founded in 1958, it’s featured a lot of big names (like Raymond Carver, Donald Barthelme, and Philip Levine) and a steady diet of good reading. Congratulations and thanks to Gianna Jacobson and company for bringing this fine magazine back.
Oh yeah, I have two new poems in there.
So proud to be in ZYZZYVA again, a fantastic San Francisco magazine: “The one journal I read cover to cover as soon as it arrives,” as Junot Diaz says. My poem “Daylight Saving” is in there, right next to a Ron Carlson story.
