The beautiful companion coffeetable book for the Women Speak ekphrastic exhibit is now available for purchase at artist Nancy Smith’s website. It’s a large, glossy, full color paperback featuring Nancy Smith’s spectacular paintings paired with poetry and prose by various female writers, including myself. My poem, “Night Garden,” is on page 23.
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).
My ode to West Virginia poem, “Country Roads,” is included in the new America’s Emerging Poets 2018: Southeast Region Anthology.
