Upcoming Publications

"HOW DOES THIS AFFECT ME?" in Scavengers 2.1* (Querencia Press)

* Originally set for publication in Scavengers 1.2. Due to logistical oversights, it is now slated to be featured in Scavengers 2.1 (Spring, 2024).


a visual poem chapbook,

"Erethism: A Poem"

with Naked Cat Publishing, coming in 2024!*

* Due to a recent restructuring at Naked Cat Publishing, I will not be moving forward with the publication of this chapbook as planned. The timing & distribution options that remain no longer seem appropriate. When The Universe speaks, I listen. I still hope to share it someday. Until then, it's back to burning a hole on my virtual shelf. Thanks to all who supported its release.
