Big News: Collection Accepted!

My manuscript, Overseeing the Downfall, has been accepted for publication by Word Poetry! The collection should be available in Fall 2020. In the coming months, I’ll post more teaser info as well as a ‘get notified!’ sign up.

I’m looking forward to not just getting the poems in the hands of more readers, but getting out and reading at various locales around Denver (and perhaps Minneapolis, Chicago and Iowa, too!)

Liner Notes

I’m honored to have my work, Liner Notes included among that of the other great poets featured in the July Ground Fresh Thursday poems. GFT is always a great hit of monthly poems, fiction and flash fiction.

So much of my work reflects and is inspired by good old rock & roll, so it’s nice to see Liner Notes gets some exposure.

Overseeing the Downfall is a finalist!

I was thrilled to see my manuscript, Overseeing the Downfall, as a finalist for the 2016 New American Poetry Prize at New American Press.

Overseeing the Downfall is a collection of Midwestern poems about work and family in the digital age, and the anticlimax of middle age. And music. It comes complete with a suggested drink pairings and playlists for the poems.

It’s an honor to have these poems so close to collected publication, but the flip side of that is the book is still looking for a home. Contact me if you’re a publisher looking for solid work that reflects the poems on this site.
