New Adventures

I would like to announce that I will be co-editor of Differentia Press with the amazing and prolific poet Felino A. Soriano. My post began today. We have several collections to catch up before we will open for submissions again. I will announce when we are open.

I would also like to announce that I will be the new poetry editor for Leaf Garden Press. My tenure will begin with Issue 11. Currently, I am a guest editor with several others for issue 10. I look forward to seeing quality submissions from all of my readers whomever you are.

Life Lesson

Recently, two great poets Lucille Clifton and Ai died. I was planning to reach out to the poet Ai to let her know of the sketches I had written of two of her poems. My life has been crazy and extremely unbalanced. I thought I had time to send her the email. She died in March. I missed an opportunity to converse with an amazing poet. I can't help but ponder what else I have missed that I can never regain. To Lucille and Ai-peace be unto your spirits.
