‘The Third Symphony’ to appear in this year’s edition of Spindrift

That’s basically the news. I was notified this afternoon.

Spindrift is the art and literary journal of Shoreline Community College, where I studied graphic design a little over ten years ago. (I also worked on the 2008 issue.) A new issue is published annually, usually around late May or early June.

You can read the original version of the poem here: https://ordinaryaveragethoughts.com/2018/04/28/the-third-symphony-a-poem/.

Sadly, they do not have any of their issues posted online, but you can learn a little more here: https://www.shoreline.edu/spindrift/about.aspx.

The Lilac Years—Ebook available now!

My latest collection of poems, The Lilac Years, will be available in ePub and Kindle formats on April 30!

The Smashwords edition will be available in your choice of ePub or Kindle format:
https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/818400. This is the version that will also be available from Apple, Barnes & Noble, and so on.

The Kindle edition available from Amazon is available only from Amazon—but you can get it for free when you purchase a copy of the print edition (details below). (If you are a Kindle person, I recommend this version, as it preserves the formatting more faithfully than the Smashwords edition does.) Here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CJPV6HX.

As for the print edition, you may recall from before:

You can get it from Amazon and Barnes and Noble, or you can check IndieBound for a bookstore in your area to order it from.

The Lilac Years

216 pp., softcover (5.5″ x 8.5″)

Gotta use that tax refund for something…

Still waiting—meanwhile…

I am still waiting with bated breath (O! the anticipation!) for the poem I submitted to the CDC Poetry Project to be posted.

In the meantime, The Seattle Star has published my Jean Cocteau poem: http://www.seattlestar.net/2018/01/the-poems-of-jean-cocteau-will-keep-you-awake-at-night/
