I thought I would offer, in digest form, some of my latest news.
My poem ‘Disassociation’ was published recently in Hayden’s Ferry Review (issue 54). HFR is a respected US literary journal that’s published out of Arizona State University. I’d tried them three times over the years before they, out of the blue, accepted the poem. A nice bonus is that they give you a chance to say a word about your piece on their blog, so here is my tupenny ha’penny worth. Thanks to the editorial team, especially the Poetry Editors Christine Holm and Dorothy Chan, Sam Martone (Ed-in-chief), and Dan Diehl (Managing Ed).
Although published some time ago, I thought this digest might be the right place to mention that a poem (‘Nipples’) was published in Psychology Tomorrow, an online journal “at the intersection of art and psychology”. Thanks so much to Charif Shanahan, Psychology Tomorrow’s Poetry Editor, for his sensitive shepherding of this one into print. (I’d like to append a “trigger warning“, as this poem may be upsetting to those who have experienced sexual violence.) Here it is.
That’s all for now. Slán / Adios / Cheerio.
