I’m very happy and excited to have won a Minnesota State Arts Board grant in poetry for 2017! See the full list of winners here: http://www.arts.state.mn.us/grants/2017/2017-awarded-ai.htm

See if you can guess the classic TV show that inspired my poem “Shady Rest” in the Fall 2016 edition of The Apple Valley Review: http://www.applevalleyreview.com

Here’s my article about the Twin Cities Antiquarian & Rare Book Fair in the August issue of The Old Times: http://issuu.com/theoldtimes/docs/old_times_v26_n08_aug_2016/1?e=8461483/37595456

It’s a book! Thanks to Georgia Greeley and Artichoke Press. Picked up my author copies of this limited edition, artist-made chapbook of What My Family Used. We’re planning an event for May–stay tuned! http://www.georgiaagreeley-artichokepress.com/Artichoke_Press/Home.html
