After some literary silence, I’ve had a few lovely notes of music enter my ear.
First, Kristy Webster over at Thursday Review was kind enough to interview me recently. Some questions were literary, others not so much. You can find the interview here.
Next, I’ve had a couple poems accepted for publication. My appreciation and gratitude to the readers/editors involved (more details forthcoming in the fall).
Last, my chapbook “Elegy/Elk River” was named a finalist in the Floating Bridge Press Chapbook Contest. If you haven’t heard of them, Floating Bridge Press is a local publisher here in Seattle, and they showcase Washington state poets. They’ve produced some of the best chapbooks I’ve read, including Laura Read’s “The Chewbacca on Hollywood Boulevard Reminds Me of You” (Best. Title. Ever.) and Casey Fuller’s “A Fort Made of Doors.” Believe me, both books are worth your time and can be ordered here.
Many thanks to the readers, screeners, and editors who helped make the last several weeks very encouraging ones. And for anyone who may read this, I hope your weeks have been filled with music, too.
