My poem, “Baptism by Fire,” about the 2014 Elk River, WV Chemical Spill/Water Crisis is in the Open Histories Poetry Sampler in the new issue of Still. The poem is included in my debut poetry collection, Give the Bard a Tetanus Shot, which you can pre-order directly from my publisher,
The inaugural issue of Barnhouse is now available. The first issue includes “Give the Bard a Hep A Shot,” my poem about the 2018 Hepatitis A outbreak in West Virginia.
“Give the Bard a Hep A Shot” is part of my series on life as a poet in Appalachia. The previous poem in the series, “Give the Bard a Tetanus Shot,” was published by Barzakh. Both poems will be in my forthcoming debut collection (more details tba).
