End of An Era 🏳️‍🌈


As I recently tweeted out it feels like the end of an era and it is the end of the decade. In 2010 I had my first poem published in an anthology, was a fixture on the Michigan slam circuit and about to publish my first poetry collection.

So for the first time in 10 years I have NO books, anthologies, chapbooks, readings or any other project in the works nor plan to. If you're an artist / poet / writer you go through gestation periods and that is where I'm at: beginning a new chapter in my life and looking forward to a much needed social media / blogging break! In the meantime, please buy books to feed me!

Here are a few highlights from the past (near) decade:
