Congratulations to Virginia Mateias and Sharon Frame Gay for their Spillwords Press Awards!

I hope that you’ll join with me in congratulating Virginia Mateias for winning the Spillwords Press Publication of the Month Award for June 2022.  Ms. Mateias won the award for her superb poem, “The Life of a Dot,” which you can read right here.

Congratulations also to Sharon Frame Gay for being named Spillwords Press Author of the Month.  🙂



My poem “Where Would We Go?” was nominated for a Spillwords Press Award.

I was notified last night that my poem “Where Would We Go?” was nominated for a Spillwords Press Publication of the Month Award for June.  I am just thrilled with the distinction; thanks so much to those of you who’ve supported this piece already.

“Where Would We Go?” was published for the first time at Spillwords Press on June 13  — you can find it right here.   I’d be flattered, of course, if you liked the poem enough to vote in its favor.  You’d need to register as a user first with the Spillwords Press website, but that’s quick and easy enough.  Here’s where to vote.

I hope you all had a great weekend!
