Station note

Hello gentle readers—

A bit of news: I had the honor of submitting a poetry manuscript to Driftwood Press’ Adrift Chapbook Contest this year, guest judged by thee Carl Phillips. Carl Phillips wrote one of my all-time favorite poems, The Swain’s Invitation; the idea that he might read some of my poetry, when I have long and lovingly read his, thrilled me to the bones.

I placed as a Top 10 finalist. I am so grateful for this opportunity and to have been read. Thank you, Driftwood Press.

Congratulations to the contest winner, Derek Annis, to my fellow finalists, and to all my fellow poets who entered.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

With lots of love,
