All poets, all writers are political. They either maintain the status quo, or they say, ’Something’s wrong, let’s change it for the better.’ – Sonia Sanchez
Poetry is an act of peace. – Pablo NerudaSteemit
I’ve only been writing poetry for a short time; and, even though that is the case, I love it. I am inspired by poets, and writing poetry. It is a lovely process to gain an insight, start to type it onto the page, and then just as that insight leaves you, another insight comes that connects to the previous. Miraculous.
I’ve published two pieces at Spillwords, Friends, and The Moments Prose. Please check them out on my Spillwords Author Page.
I’ve also published two poetry pieces at MasticadoresUSA, Fragments of Being, and, The Brilliance of Life. MasticadoresUSA, edited by Gabriela Marie Milton, is a wonderful place to read poetry. If you’ve not yet checked it out, please do so, thank you.
MasticadoresIndia – Coming Soon!
I have two pieces that will be published at MasticadoresIndia, and I am really excited about both of these poems. Once they are published, you will be able to find them at MasticadoresIndia, edited by Terveen Gill, which just launched September 1. If you’ve not yet checked it out, please do so, thank you.
Books and Journals
Utmost Feelings: Astha’s Anthology
I was fortunate to have participated in this lovely Anthology, compiled by our recently passed and beloved Astha.
It was such a beautiful experience, and I am thankful to every one of the writers, and particularly grateful to Navin and Cindy. Without them, I would not have been a part of this beautiful Anthology.
Here is a document with details on how to order. Thank you.
I am participating in four more Anthologies, which will be published over the next couple of months. Like Utmost Feelings, they are being published by True Dreamster, and are full of talented writers from around the world.
Hallow Emotions is actually available now on Amazon. Please take a look, when you have a moment, thank you.
The other three are in varying stages of development, and include, Platonic Eternal Love, Blue Whispers at Midnight, Paradise of Jubilation, and The Mind’s Scribble.
As these Anthologies are completed, I will update this page, and all of you.
Word Weaving – A Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse
I’m also thrilled to report that I will be in the first edition of Word Weaving – A Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse, edited by Colleen Chesebro, and Jules Paige. The Journal will be out in October!
A Poet’s’ Iteration
I’ve also finally decided to compile a debut poetry book. I’m excited about publishing this book, and would like to thank all of my blogger-friends for their support, and assistance.
My goal is to have a draft of the book ready this winter, and then publish the book in the Spring of 2022.
I will follow up with more details as the book comes to fruition.
Academic Publications and Presentations
I’ve also published several academic papers and delivered various presentations on topics, such as gender and sexuality studies, youth development, bullying interventions, and program delivery and evaluation. You can access a list of those papers and presentations here.
