Taos Journal of Poetry and Art

I am honored to have two of my poems–“Anne Sexton” and “Sylvia Plath”–included in Issue #12 of the Taos Journal of Poetry and Art, which is now live.
From the Mission Statement, by editor Robin Shawver:
“This spring 2020, the world joins together now in a surreal landscape of pause.

Months before this moment, I took over as Editor of The Taos Journal of International Poetry and Art, and so begun my journey with this issue and with the poets and artists featured here.

In Issue 12, New Mexico poets and artists continue to be highlighted as well as poets currently living or from varying Unites States and countries around the world. “Grey Day,” the collage created by artist Johanna DeBiasse is the image that introduces the current issue.

The journal was begun eight years ago by Catherine Strisik and Veronica Golos in Taos, New Mexico, U.S., amid astounding horizontal beauty of mesas and the vertical allure of mountains. I will continue to hold that splendor close as I gaze on new mountains in the city of Qingdao, China where I currently live.”
