On the occasion of publishing a poem this month in the fabulous River Mouth Review, I realized I needed to update my Poems page with a number of online publications. It is now up to date with links from the past year or so. Reading the other writers in these magazines is always an amazing reminder of why we do what we do. There are so many amazing voices out there, writing vital words, fighting to be heard amidst all the noise. Hasn’t it always been that way? Yet the current firehose of (mis)information can make it seem all the more overwhelming.
Find yourself a good book or a good literary magazine and take a break from all the hubub. It’s not escapism; you will return with renewed energy and insight.
