Nomination for Best of the Net

I am deeply honored to be nominated by work to a calm for a Best of the Net award. They have chosen my poem “To the Men who told me my Love was not enough” along with four other poets from their web journal. The site specializes in confessional poetry. I’ve slowed my poetry activity quite a bit this year, so this news feels especially timely.

work to a calm online literary zine, March 2017

Here are three newish poems you can read in this “confessional” online zine called work to a calm. They range from sexy to sad and to empowering. Maybe none of that. Maybe only some.

The Definitive Soapbox on December 16th, 2016

12010480_868836519868823_2105773058091563351_o Of all the things I love about Long Beach, community is my favorite. Fox Coffee House has been host to many community events, such as two weekly open mics, various special book releases, and two monthly poetry readings, 2nd Mondays Poetry Party and The Definitive Soapbox. Some poets have been gathering under the banner of Long Beach Renaissance with the goal of furthering poetry in our community. We are attacking this goal on multiple fronts, gathering leaders, exchanging hosts as features, and even having parties together! On Friday, December 16th, G. Murray Thomas and I will be featuring for The Definitive Soapbox. It starts at 7 pm with an open reading list and lots of good vibes!
