I forgot to mention . . .




Recent Honorable Mentions for two of my poems:

"North on 81" the lead-off sonnet in my forthcoming book, Pointing Home.
(Able Muse Write Prize - Poetry, 2018)

and

"On Reading the 40th Statewide Investigating Grand Jury Report", a seven-sonnet poem discussing my reactions to the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report on priest sexual abuse in six dioceses, in particular the Diocese of Scranton.     (Poetry by the Sea Sonnet Crown contest, 2019)

Marilyn Nelson was the final judge for both contests.

Thank you, Alex and Kim.
