Wow, what an incredible honor—when I awakened this morning, I discovered that Crisis Chronicles Press has nominated my poem "Let's Get It On" for the esteemed Pushcart Prize! I am beyond thrilled. Thank you, John Burroughs, editor/publisher of CCP, and congratulations to the other five nominees: Kevin Ridgeway, Susan A. Sheppard, John Dorsey, Michael Ceraolo, and Tracie Morell!
I wrote "Let's Get It On" for this year's Snoetry: A Winter Wordfest (held in Erie, PA back in January 2015) and it's included in the CCP NineSense Series chapbook Thunderclap Amen. The title "Thunderclap Amen" comes from a phrase in the poem...full kudos to John Burroughs for picking it out and making it the title of the chapbook.
