Spring is on the way after a seemingly endless Michigan winter! Five years ago I begin The Literary Party blog to promote my Literary Party debut and have accumulated a sizeable collection of poetry, literary posts as well as various LGBT / Amish / LGBT Amish content. A heartfelt thank you to my readers, book reviewers, fellow poets / writers for your support!
Looking back over five years of posts I realize this has certainly been a productive period for me. Since 2011 my poetry has appeared in numerous anthologies, chapbooks and I even found time for several open-mic readings, essays and a short story. Currently I am writing poems exploring the queer Amish identity and hope to have enough material for a Writing Knights collection later this year. (stay tuned).
I was recently honored to receive a shout out from my East / West Symphony muse, the brilliant artist Tareq Sayed Rajab de Montfort! Thank you!
East / West Symphony appears in the recent Writing Knights Press Page-A-Day Poetry Anthology, along with five other new poems. You can purchase a copy via Amazon.
Lastly, my villanelle Northern Skies has been included in the new 2014 Poetry Anthology from Writing Knights Press!
