|Girl on a Swing, by Winslow Homer|
Some recent acceptances and upcoming appearances of my work:
Mezzo Cammin: my essay/research paper on María Eugenia Vaz Ferreira (Uruguayan poet) - currently being "coded" for website presence
First Things: my sonnet "The Red Beads" - date TBA
Quadrant: my ekphrastic poem "Edward Hopper's Automat" - Australian literary journal
Innisfree Poetry Journal: my rondeau "Heartwood"
The Centrifugal Eye: two poems in the upcoming 5th year anniversary anthology : "Beach Dogs" and "Lost and Found"
Still waiting to hear from the following journals where I have submitted recently: The Hudson Review, Measure, Antiphon and CanLit. Keeping my fingers crossed!
Finally, have just put the finishing touches to my second full-length collection manuscript, title pending, which I will be sending "out there" to find a home in the Fall of this year. Sixty-five poems in various forms, including one sonnet sequence, a cento/sestina, a pantoum, ten translations (from French and Spanish), a "light" section, and much more. The cover is fabulous and I've received permission from the photographer to use it.
Wish me luck!
