Two poems — “Aubade” and “I Know You” — have been published this spring in a special commemorative issue of WordWorks. Also, “Coming Out” appeared in this summer’s issue of FreeFall; this poem was a finalist in FreeFall’s 2013 poetry contest.

Here’s “The Night of My Conception,” published in 2013 in Room’s Issue 36:4.

Watch for my poem “The Night of My Conception” in Room‘s Issue 36.4 — coming soon! As well, my poem “Elegy for My Youngest Brother” will appear in the 2013 winter edition of Island Writer, available in December.

In Feburary, I was delighted to be a featured reader at the Second Annual Tea and ‘Ti Literary Salon at the home of Kathleen Martin, passionate lover of the arts and host extraordinaire.

My poem “Undersong” appears in Room‘s recent issue on labour (Volume 35.4). Have a look at this issue to discover diverse interpretations of the idea of labour — by both writers and artists.
