Winter 2014

Welcome! In the Look, Read, and Listen areas, you will find artwork, articles, reviews, and videos for my poetry books Pretend the World and Dark Lake and my anthology Riding Shotgun: Women Write About Their Mothers.

Winter News:  I’ve had two broadsides printed recently: “Returning to Lake Superior” from Pretend the World  was reprinted in a beautiful broadside published by Red Bird Press with art by Mary Klien, and a new poem “The Path” was printed with a photographic image by Jes Lee for a Minnesota Center for Book Arts exchange and show.  I’ve had poems published or forthcoming in The Mom Egg ReviewStone Coast ReviewMizna, and CairnsMy Minnesota State Arts Board grant will wind up in late spring with a recording of poetry from Pretend the World featuring a plethora of popular writers reading the poems and hopefully a final performance. More news on that soon. In the meantime, here is my upcoming schedule.
