Just a quick post to officially announce that my second full length collection of poetry, Small Fires, has just been accepted for publication in 2017 from FutureCycle Press. This collection will feature the poems “Joe” and “El Rio” among others.
FutureCycle are also the same good people who published my prose poem/flash fiction chapbook, Reasons (not) to Dance. I’m excited to be working with them again. Stay tuned for further news come 2017.
To celebrate the Small Fires news, I thought I’d share my contribution to the Journeys into Tanka project that’s going on via the Tanka Society of America Facebook page. Poets were asked to share a tanka as well as some words on their journey into the form, what it means for them and how. Readers are welcome to respond in the comments with their own tanka and/or tanka-related prose.
Special thanks to Marilyn Hazelton, TSA president and editor of red lights, for the invitation to contribute!
See you Friday!
