An Interview in GEOSI READS

Woke this morning to find that the prolific Geosi Gyasi has published the interview I did with him this morning on his blog, GEOSI READS. Check it out here -- and while you are there, just look at the list of writers (from all over the globe!) whom he has interviewed. A treasure trove indeed. I am honored to be among them. Thank you, Geosi, and to Rewa Zeinati for hooking us up!

A Best of the Net nom?

So honored and excited to have my poem "Terminal" nominated for Best of the Net by One! Thanks, Richard, for all you do!

Two fingers of a poem...

Cicada appears in Shot Glass, an online journal of short poems!

The Nazim Hikmet Poetry Competition is one of the best-run contests I have ever entered. And they are dealing with submissions from 25 countries and 43 US states! Pictured above: my three contributor's copies of the published chapbook. Not pictured: my $100 check (each of ten winners receives $100) and, best of all, a letter welcoming me to the "Nazim Hikmet family".

This NEVER Happens!

A graphic designer getting a shout-out for her artwork for a play?'s Sherry Shameer Cohen is a theatre reviewer who notices and appreciates every effort that goes into the production of a play -- in this instance, Steve Martin's Picasso at the Lapin Agile at Long Wharf Theatre. Posting this interview here may seem like bragging, but I like to think I am posting this for all the graphic designers who toil (and boy, do we toil!) in obscurity. Cheers!!!

Excited to have two Egypt poems in Sukoon!

A little bit about Sukoon, from the website: Sukoon is an Arab-themed, English language, online literary magazine reflecting the diversity and richness of the Arab world.
Sukoon is an Arabic word meaning “stillness.” What we mean is the stillness discovered within, as the artist continues to follow his/her creative calling—a calling that compels the artist to continue on his/her creative path for the sole reason that he/she does not know how not to.
Sukoon is also a phonetic symbol used in the Arabic script.
