Default Several Upcoming Publications

An handful of poetry news items!




My sonnet, "Coming to Terms" has won third prize in the Better Than Starbucks annual sonnet contest. Not bad, out of over 500 entries ! Thank you Vera Ignatowitsch and judges! The poem is available on the Better Than Starbucks website https://www.betterthanstarbucks.org/sonnet-contest




Two chapters of my forthcoming verse-tale, "Annals of the Dear Unknown" are now available in the current issue of Alamaba Literary Review. Thank you, Bill Thompson! I'll let everyone know when the print journal is available online!



Two poems, an ekphrastic sonnet inspired by the painting "Rooms by the Sea" (1951) by Edward Hopper, "The Jumping-off Place" and
my English translation of Pierre de Ronsard's "Ode Cassandre" will be published in the January issue of the journal Mezzo Cammin. Thank you, Anna Evans!




Another sonnet, "On Reading the Grand Jury Report, An Altar Boy Remembers" will be published in the journal Presence 2022 in an upcoming issue. Thank you, Mary Ann B. Miller!



Last but not least, my epigram "Flammarion Pilgrim Woodcut Redux", originally published in my first book, Lines of Flight, will be published in an anthology titled "Outer Space: 100 Poems" edited by poet Midge Goldberg for Cambridge University Press as part of their 100 Poems series of anthologies. The poems range from Homer to the present.



The anthology will be both print (run of 2000) and downloadable (3000) for worldwide distribution. I'm honored to have my work appear along with a fabulous group of scientists, poets & translators including Liz Ahl, Ned Balbo, Bill Coyle, Robert Crawford, Dick Davis, Martin Elster, Rhina Espaillat, Michael Ferber, John Foy, Alice Gorman, Sarah Howe, Allison Joseph, A.M. Juster, Donna Kane, X.J. Kennedy, Janet Alexa Kenny, Len Krisak, Gwyneth Lewis, Leslie Monsour, Victoria Moul, Alfred Nicol, Linda Pastan, Jay Ruzesky, Tracy K. Smith, Alicia E Stallings Yun Wang, Deborah Warren, Richard Wilbur, Anton Yakovlev and others. The volume will end with a poem by Charles Simic that was part of the NASA space launch in July 2021.


Thank you, Midge Goldberg for the invitation to have my work published in this great project!

That's quite a haul, Cathy. I'm really looking forward to reading your verse-tale. When will the whole of it be out? Congratulations!

Next summer, Andrew. Hopefully in time for the 244th anniversary of the Battle of Wyoming (Wyoming Valley, Pennsylvania). I'll keep you posted.

Congrats, Cathy. I entered the Starbucks one also, and was in my usual position - second Honorable Mention, behind you and the estimable Rhina Espaillat.

Cheer up, Michael, Im no good at competitions, and have about given up. The last I won was an honorable mention (or was it horrible mention) for an early version of the item on page 71 in my book that you have. The same level of citation and my misreading of it was for an entry in a juvenile science fair that involved a big electrical capacitor, never mind why.
