Poet Bio: I'm live in Vermont. In recent January's I have studied with Kim Stafford through a daily online writing class. He is now Oregon's Poet Laureate and won't be teaching this class this year. My first winter in Vermont – I'd love to write a poem daily in January. Feel the snow.

My poetry has received 7 Pushcart nominations and is widely represented in dozens of journals and many anthologies – check out my website at I have four collections in print: Urban Wild (Finishing Line Press); Ocean's Laughter (Kelsay Books); Broadfork Farm (The Poetry Box), and How I Learned To Be White (Antrim House). How I Learned To Be White received the Gold Prize for Poetry Book Category for Motivational Poetry in the Human Relations Indie Book Prize for 2018. I just completed a residency at Playa where I finished a manuscript of poems about trees, One Bent Twig, which is looking for a publisher.
