I'm excited to have two virtual readings coming up in early 2021.
In January, I'll be reading in the Sewanee Writers' Conference virtual reading series, and in March I'll be reading for the Hudson Valley Writers Center with Aaron Caycedo-Kimura, in celebration of Aaron's chapbook, Ubasute, which will be published by Slapering Hol Press early next year.
Please see my events page for my details. Hope you can join us.
As we all deal with different kinds of distances these days, I wanted to share this interview up this week on The Lit Pub about my book, The Grace of Distance.
Thanks so much to Marcene Gandolfo for her thoughtful questions, to Molly Gaudry for giving this conversation a good home, and to Kristina Marie Darling for helping to make this happen.
Check out the Poetry in the Bar podcast this month to hear Dennis Hinrichsen read from his new book, This is Where I Live I Have Nowhere Else to Go. And check out the open mic portion of the show to hear me read a poem from The Grace of Distance.
Good news from the west coast: Crab Creek Review picked up a poem. Big thanks to the editors for taking my poem "Here and Gone" for the magazine.
I'm excited to have two new poems forthcoming in a future issue of The Southern Review. "At Chuang Yen Monastery" (a prose poem) and "Late Morning" are from a new book manuscript I've been working on--a book of elegies.
Thanks so much to editors Elaine Sexton, Joan Cappello and Jennifer Stewart Miller for including a poem of mine in the new issue of 2 Horatio. "Aunt Elizabeth and Aunt Eileen" is one of the small handful of poems I've written in this strange year.
I'm thrilled it's found a good home, and in such good company: check out the complete issue for new work by Jennifer Franklin, Aaron Smith, Peter Covino, Pamela Hart, Martha Rhodes, Ron Slate,
Jason Schneiderman, David Groff, Michael H. Broder and many more.
Read 2 Horatio here.
Very excited to report two poems from my new manuscript will be published in Prairie Schooner.
"A Photography of Father" and "A Photograph of Mother" will appear in the upcoming winter issue.
Some good news today: my poem, "Heaney's Voice," will appear in Volume XXII of the Valparaiso Poetry Review. Thanks so much to editor Edward Byrne for giving this poem a good home.

I had a great time sharing some poems from The Grace of Distance and talking about my writing as part of the LSU Press Remote Author Series.
Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by to listen--and ask some great questions.
