Leah Browning of Apple Valley Review has also nominated "Mailing a Snowflake" for a Best of the Net award.
It's National Poetry Month, and once again, I am attempting to write 30 poems in 30 days. Follow my progress at my blog - Put Words Together; Make Meaning.
I have been told all my life that hard work pays off. And I can now say with certainty that it is true. First was the good news a few weeks ago from Sundress. Then last week, I received word that I will have a two-week residency this June at Kimmel-Harding-Nelson Center for the Arts in Nebraska. Then, this week, I got the notification that Kristy Bowen's dancing girl press has accepted my chapbook We Build Houses of Our Bodies for publication in 2013.
I am so grateful for all of these people/presses who provide opportunities for writers to be heard and have their work in the world. Watch closely next year for lots of updates and hopefully readings as well.

I am grateful and proud to announce that Sundress Publications has agreed to take on my first full-length manuscript A House of Many Windows for publication in 2013.
Many thanks to Erin Elizabeth Smith and her editorial team for seeing something worthwhile in my work.
