My Poems

My poem “Offspring” in this beautiful digital broadside by Orooj-e-Zafar

My poem “Offspring,” which was originally published by Stirring in the their July 2016 issue, is featured below in this digital broadside by artist and writer Orooj-e-Zafar. I’m so pleased with the result! Many thanks to Orooj-e-Zafar for creating such a gorgeous representation of my poem. You can see more of her work on the cahoodaloodaling Facebook page.

Orooj-e-Zafar donated her time to help raise funds for the Tandem Reader Awards and offered her broadsides in exchange for donations to their IndieGoGo campaign, which has now concluded, but you can still support Tandem by donating here. Your donations will support the cash prizes given to the winning nominated chapbooks.

You can read more about the Tandem Reader Awards, watch their video, and read my in depth interview below with Tandem’s president Rhiannon Thorne.

What are the Tandem Reader Awards and how are they helping poets?

I’m blown away by the importance and the meaning packed into this project. The folks at the Tandem Reader Awards have attracted support from some outstanding literary community presses and lit mags, such as Milkweed Editions, Copper Canyon Press, Sundress Publicationsand poets and artists such as, Kaveh Akbar, Siaara Freeman, Megan Peak, Chen Chen, Sarah Blake, Heather Bell, Meggie Royer, Orooj-e-Zafar, Francesca Bell, Jeremy Gaulke, and Ruth Foley.
