Here are some of my most recently published reviews, interviews, journalism and poetry:
My essay “How to Save a Swan” is in The Laurel Review. It’s short and humorous and you actually might learn what to do if you see a swan walking down the road.
Review of Kristina Marie Darling’s Dark Horse and In the Room of Persistent Sorry. Darling is a champion of experimental forms, the boundaries and freedoms of poetics and an inspiration in all regards. In The Literary Review, a beautiful publication.
Review of Grace Cavalieri’s Other Voices, Other Lives. My review takes a deep dive into the life and work of poet, radio host and current poet laureate of Maryland, on the publication of her collected works.
Review of Robert Glick’s Two Californias: “Gen X may be finally ready for our winning moments. This book is certainly one.”
Review of Bill Lavender’s MY ID: “I find myself unpacking my own depths in the presence of a great writer’s fearless journey, whereas maybe I cannot find or accept that moment in other genres or therapies, medicines or practices.”
Review of Dana Roeser’s All Transparent Things Need Thundershirts: “We are lucky to have shameless and wild Dana Roeser on our side.” Two Sylvias Press is a joy to behold.
Able News: Winner of the 2020 Fair Media Council Award for Disability Journalism. It is the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This issue’s special section looks at the past, present and future of the landmark legislation. It is free to sign up and read.
