Happy News

This will be a quick post because I haven’t found time to write in a while and to share a little good news for National Poetry Month. I’m proud to have two poems, “Quarantine” and “Partial Eclipse,” appear in the new issue of Birmingham Poetry Review.

Also, in the last month or so, I’ve been in touch with a music group out of Greece, called StarWound. They reached out to me, actually, with a proposal to set one of my poems to music. They liked “Black Racer” that was in Delta Poetry Review last summer. Given their theme, I’ve sent them a couple of other poems to consider, so we’ll see what happens.

We’ve been in talks about bringing them to The W next October. We now have a date for their concert (tentatively Oct. 25, pending their other travel plans), and we’ll begin collaborating next month. Meanwhile, StarWound is in Germany recording their third album. They will also work with student poets and musicians for the day they’re on campus, which should be great.
