"The Bullet Cures"

in Poetry Super Highway

Poetry Super Highway's mission is to expose as many people to as many other people’s poetry as possible. Read poems, submit your poetry for publication, enter their annual poetry contest, and peruse their directory of thousands of poetry and writing websites.

The judges chose my poem as the winner of the PSH 2023 Poetry Contest.

in The Passionfruit Review

The Passionfruit Review seeks work which engages with love in the broadest possible sense: writing which seeks love out or runs screaming from it; which delights in, is bored of, resents, yearns for, abhors, or denies love.

The poem "Love Poems Are Changelings" is forthcoming in The Quilled Ink Review

The short fiction manuscript The Beginners was selected as a finalist in The 2023 Digging Press Chapbook Contest. Fingers crossed about their early 2024 final decision on the winner!
