“The Writer” appears in Scars Publications’ Newest Anthology

I have an extra reason to be thankful this holiday — Scars Publications again selected a poem of mine to appear in its newest anthology. “The Writer,” which Scars published in the May 2020 edition of Down in the Dirt magazine, was included in the Inside the Box anthology that Scars released yesterday. (The anthology includes creative works selected from over the past year from both Down in the Dirt, and its sister publication, cc&d magazine.)

You can order Inside the Box right here over at Amazon.

I’m once again grateful to Editor Janet Kuypers for allowing me to contribute to an outstanding literary collection.



I’m getting Down in the Dirt again.

I got some great news tonight — I’ll get to see my poetry featured in Scars Publications’ Down in the Dirt magazine for a third time.  My poem “The Writer” will appear in the May 2020 issue.

The poem will also appear this week at the Scars website.  (The publisher produces both Down in the Dirt and cc&d magazines.)  Finally, “The Writer” might also be featured in future Down in the Dirt collections; the magazine regularly reprints selected poems in anthology format.  (I was lucky enough last March to see my poem “hens staring upward” reprinted in The Flickering Light anthology following its initial publication.)

Thank you, Editor Janet Kuypers, for allowing me to join the range of talented voices that are regularly showcased by Down in the Dirt!
