I have been informed that the following poems of mine will appear in the anthology.

New Work in The Centrifugal Eye

The April/May 2011 issue of The Centrifugal Eye, appropriately titled, “April Has the Cruelest Voice: The Bitter Point-of-View,” has just been released. I am pleased to announce that my poem, “Note to Self” appears in this issue. It can be read on Page 55.

So many great pieces in this issue! I extend sincere thanks to Eve Anthony Hanninen for her dedication and fine editorial work, and kudos to her as well for the exciting redesign.

The print version of the new April/May issue should be available for purchase by mid May.

Two Poems at Redheaded Stepchild Magazine

The Spring 2011 issue of Redheaded Stepchild Magazine is LIVE. My poems “The Bird in My Ribcage” and “Lost” are included. Please read the issue! I give thanks to Malaika King Albrecht for selecting my work and for her stellar editorial work.

Redheaded Stepchild only accepts quality work that has been rejected elsewhere. These poems were a bit dejected and down on their luck (ha) but Malaika saw something worthy in them and gave them a beautiful home.

The issue can be read at Redheaded Stepchild Magazine.
