Thanks so much to the editors of The Midnight Oil for taking two poems--"The Last Train" and "Where She Went"--for their upcoming issue.

If you haven't picked up a copy already, I hope you'll follow their good advice and take a look.
Thanks so much to the editors of Verse Daily for featuring "The Stag" as today's poem. And thank you to editor Rhett Iseman Trull for first publishing this poem in Cave Wall.
This poem is from a new manuscript I've been working on - a sequence of poems that detail the experiences of a teenage boy in a time of war and just after.
I'm excited to have a new poem online at The McNeese Review. "Someone He Loved" is part of the new book manuscript I've been working on about a teenage boy's experiences in a time of war, just before and just after. This poem focuses on the boy's Uncle Albert.
Thank you to the editors for publishing my long poem, "Forgotten Until You Find It," in the spring issue of The Southern Review. This poem, part of my forthcoming book The Grace of Distance, was inspired by a lunchtime trip to The Frick to see The Girl with A Pearl Earring when she was visiting.
I’m thrilled to have four poems in the new issue of Cave Wall. These poems—“Stag,” “Once,” “A Little” and “Disappear”—make a nice intro to the new book project I’ve been working on for the past few years.
This issue includes images of some of the contributors’ drafts of their poems (including mine) as artwork throughout the issue. There is also “bonus material” online that complements this issue--Q&As with the contributors on revision.
Thanks so much to editor Rhett Iseman Trull for publishing these poems and for her enthusiasm for this project of mine.
Thanks so much to editors James Allen Hall and Lindsay Lusby for including two poems of mine in the new issue of Cherry Tree. This is a beautiful print journal, but you can read one my poems I shared on Instagram (look for @thorburnpoet).
I’m thrilled to have my work appear in such great company, and have been enjoying reading the new issue over the past week.
Big thanks to editor Kristina Marie Darling for accepting my poem, “What’s Left to Tell,” for an upcoming issue of Tupelo Quarterly. I'm excited to appear in this journal, which also publishes a lot of interesting interviews and other features on writers and artists.
I'm excited to report that I’ll be making a repeat appearance in the beautiful series of digital broadsides created by Broadsided Press. My poem, “Mother’s Silver Teapot,” was recently chosen with an expected publication date next spring.
You can learn more about Broadsided Press and what they do—and download some amazing broadsides--over here.
You can also see, read and download a copy of my broadsided poem, “The Other Side.” In addition, there’s a Q&A with me and Kate Baird, the wonderful artist who collaborated on this broadside with me.
