My Poems

My poem “Footnote to a Footnote” published in Chagrin River Review’s 5th year anniversary issue – with audio!

Very excited that my poem “Footnote to a Footnote” was selected by the editorial staff to appear in their special tenth edition of Chagrin River Review, a print and electronic anthology of the most representative works published in their first five years. The poem was originally published in the Fall 2013 issue and was one of my first publications in a national literary magazine. I’d say, this is the publication that really made me start believing in my work enough to keep sending it out.  This poem is my response to Allen Ginsberg’s “Footnote to Howl”  and is included in my forthcoming chapbook of response poems, also entitled Footnote, to be published by Lithic Press early this summer. One of the greatest things about this lit mag is that they include audio for most of the work they publish.

Chagrin River Review is named after the Chagrin River, which flows into Lake Erie in the Northeast corner of Ohio. Not only do we publish work with Ohio connections, but any poetry and stories featuring original and powerful writing. We publish writers at all levels, emerging and established.”

  1. Dear Trish, I have been receiving your posts for over a year and am very grateful. I am a retired social worker and started writing poetry in the last 5 years or so. Through your posts I have discovered journals that might appreciate my work. At this time, other than in Lyrical Iowa and Poetry in Public in Iowa City I remain unpublished. The good news is I am learning to be rejected and not dejected and I credit your emails for a part of this lesson. Thanks for your good work. Martha Schut
