BRAND NEW in 2015: Beak and Leaf: Sonnets


Background Information

When it comes to writing, I'm reminded of the slogan seen on t-shirts in gay bookstores--"I can't even think straight"--since my writing career has been so circuitous. Though I once taught English at the university level, I am not an academic, having foregone the university life for the challenges of secondary education. Though I've been writing most of my life, all of my published poems have been in the past three decades. I frequently remind my high school students that the difference between success and failure comes down to one word: persistence. I am, if nothing else, persistent in my writing.

Birth Place
Cherry Point, NC United States
Accomplishments

2003--I won the Taos Writers' Conference Merit Scholarship in Poetry. 2010--I won the Christina Sergeyevna Award for the best poem at the Austin International Poetry Festival.

Additional Information

I edited the Dos Gatos Press collection, "Wingbeats: Exercises and Practice in Poetry," an anthology of exercises by 58 poets from around the country, as well as its follow-up, "Wingbeats II" (2014). I also edited the anthology "Lifting the Sky: Southwestern Haiku & Haiga."
