April is National Poetry Month, and I have poetry news, as well as some great book recommendations. https://mailchi.mp/d7dc86361012/a-look-ahead-to-april-and-recommended-books-2100681
My latest newsletter is out, with more details on these exciting bits of news. Read the full issue here.
You may have attended one of the Sibling Revelry poetry events that my sister, Gay Guard-Chamberlin, and I held in Chicago and in Sacramento last spring. Or perhaps you attended our Zoom events. If you missed your chance to catch what Friends of the Edgewater Library characterized as “thoughtful, clever, touching…delicious, masterful word play,” fear not! A new 20-minute video is now available, offering a safely distanced version of Sibling Revelry in which we each perform a handful of poems and a bit of banter.
Watch the video here and please let us know what you think!
In other poetry news, my poem “Respite” won first prize in the California State Poetry Society‘s annual contest. And two poems, “Edie” and “Notes from a Brief Affair” were published in the new anthology, Voices 2020 from Cold River Press.
