Heaven We Haven't Yet Dreamed + Book Tour 2019 - 2020

I am delighted to announce my new book, Heaven We Haven't Yet Dreamed, is published by Stubborn Mule Press!

Heaven We Haven't Yet Dreamed contains sections of 23 pages of poetry each from Dianne Borsenik, Juliet Cook, Puma Perl, and Jeanette Powers.

In Heaven We Haven't Yet Dreamed, I continue the poetry journey that began in Raga for What Comes Next (published by Stubborn Mule Press in January, 2019), with many new poems written this year specifically for this collection. I actually wrote one of them four days after the deadline for the manuscript!

Heaven We Haven't Yet Dreamed features gorgeous cover art "Alone at Night" by Amy  Scherer and superb edits by Linzi Garcia. This book is 116 pages long, and is only $15 (plus $3 for postage)!
In the words of my publisher, you will be reading the works of "four radical femme poets"! Oooh, baby!

I've included the PayPal link here, and I've also posted a PayPal link on this website (right column). You can order the book directly from me, and I'll be happy to sign it for you!

I've just returned from Yellow Springs, Ohio, where I attended the Ohio Poetry Association's Sun & Moon Poetry Festival at Glen Helen Nature Preserve--the event was fabulous! We read, workshopped, and hiked our poems. Earlier this week, I also performed at the Dairy Barn in Athens, Ohio, and at Poetry Plus at Art on Madison in Lakewood. I'm honored to have several more poetry events scheduled in September, October, and November of this year. I'm taking a break from reading very far from home during December, January, and February (I do have one reading in Amherst, Ohio, in February), but I'll begin traveling again in March. I  hope you'll join me at these events to celebrate the living art of poetry!
