I'm giving a reading in LA! I'm taking part in Rattle's Spring Reading Series on Sunday, May 10, 2014 at 5:00 PM at Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse. My fellow readers are Love Poem Issue contributors Paula Bonnell and Richard Widerkehr. If you're in the LA metro area I'd love to see you!
I'll be reading my poem from issue #43, "Crown for a Young Marriage," plus some other stuff. I was really thrilled when this poem was accepted for publication. I was pretty sure that no contemporary lit mag would be interested in publishing a crown of love sonnets in rhyming iambic pentameter, so I was especially pleased and grateful when Rattle not only accepted it, but championed it (and me).
