Holy cow it's been a while since I posted.  My apologies.  I'm neck deep in grading 9th grade essays as I'm currently doing my high school student teaching semester.  I'm still involved in the poetry scene, having just done a reading at Orr Street Studios for their Hearing Voices series, which was a BLAST!  That was the warmest (and largest) reception I've received for a reading.  What a great time with great people.
 
Also, I just received news in the last few days that I'm a finalist for the Andres Montoya Poetry Prize for my war poetry manuscript, had a poem accepted by Louisiana Review, and had a poem accepted by Cream City Review.  Wow, after several months of silence, to have such a flurry of success is a great feeling. 
 
Now....those essays aren't going to grade themselves.  Back to the grind. 
 
 
Keep on rockin' in the free world.
