Last night I received the delightful news that three of my poems — “In Small Significant Ways We Are Horses,” “To Keep At Least Partially In the Air,” and “We Are Many People Some Okay” — have been accepted for publication in Alaska Quarterly Review! I celebrated by baking a potato at 1:30 am and watching The Man with the Golden Gun. Made sense at the time

Thank you again to editors Terri Lewers, Preston Hutcherson, and Greg Brownderville!

Thrilled to share the news that my poems “We Live on a Foreign Planet This One” and “Sneaking Back Inside” have been accepted at cream city review!
