Thrilled and thankful the Kentucky Arts Council has granted me a 2017 Emerging Artist Award. I’m in great company and will be reading with fellow award winner Dave Harrity later this fall. Check out his book, These Intricacies.

It’s been a great fall. Poems accepted by Wacamaw, Valparaiso Poetry Review, and The Briar Cliff Review. They’re all fantastic journals that I’m thrilled to be a part of. Check out the poems in Wacamaw and VPR online.
Pleased to hear my manuscript was a finalist for Bona Fide Books’ Melissa Lanitis Gregory Poetry Prize. It’s a great press. Congratulations to Julia Shipley! I’m looking forward to reading her collection, The Academy of Hay.
