Jenny Santellano will read one of my poems!

Hey, gang — I received some nice news today.  Poet Jenny Santellano has kindly agreed to feature a poem of mine in her ongoing video series.

Jenny is a particularly gracious creative person who allows other poets to benefit from her voice; she reads selected poems at her Youtube channel, which you can find right here.  (Seriously, guys, she has a beautiful voice.)

The poem selected is “The Writer.” It was part of a trilogy of poems entitled “Three Dreamers,” which was first published in 2013 by Dagda Publishing in its online format, and then in its print anthology, “Threads.”  (“Three Dreamers” was also subsequently published by Illumen Magazine, Dead Snakes and UFO Gigolo.)

I’ll be sure to post a link when the video appears.

Thanks Jenny!

My latest mention in the University of Mary Washington Magazine’s “Class Notes”

I am also quite grateful to see that the University of Mary Washington Magazine’s “Class Notes” section mentioned Illumen Magazine’s publication of my “Three Dreamers” set of poems this past winter.
