August issue of The Light Ekphrastic is up!


Along with Annie Howe’s marvelous papercuts, my two poems are up at The Light Ekphrastic in the latest issue. Thanks to Jenny O’Grady for selecting our work. You can check both out here.

I am amazed at the intricate work Annie has produced here, and found it an excellent challenge to respond to her work, Bikes. I came up with the poem, A Circle of Bikes.  In return, Annie created a wonderful cat portrait, complete with the mittens from my poem, In the Next Dream, She is Still Running.

There are other writers, painters, photographers also sharing: Gregory Wm. Gunn and Seth Sawyers, and Nathan Filbert and Carrie Ann Rennolds.

Submission call is now up for the November 2012 issue, if you’re interested in trying ekphrasis.



Poems are up at The Light Ekphrastic for Issue 9

Today is a bit of a brag. I had mentioned my poem (well, poems, really) being accepted for the latest issue of The Light Ekphrastic.  Here is the link to the first page of the issue.  There are some wonderful artists taking part, so be sure to check them all out.

My particular page is here, with my poems and the photographs of Marlayna Demond:

There is also a call for submissions to the May issue. Deadline is February 20th, so there isn’t much time. But it’s a lot of fun and a bit of a challenge!  Check out the submission guidelines here:
