It’s been a long time since I’ve done a Friday Goodness, but I do have some things I’m pretty stoked about today. Here we go!
Tomorrow I am reading with dear friend and kick-ass poet Anna Evans at the Collingswood Book Festival. We go on at 2:30 p.m. in the poetry tent (if it rains, we’ll be in Collingswood High School, Room 120) and we have a fantastic set planned for you! Also, don’t miss the other very cool poetry events planned for the day, including a workshop by one of our favorite teachers, BJ Ward.

I have several poems up right now in a few places:
Blood Lotus Journal: Letter to the Only Girl in JROTC; Dear Crux
Toad the Journal: What, Then; Obedience, My Father; Rapunzel Syndrome; Alice in Wonderland Syndrome
