Recent Stuff: A poem nearly 10 years in the making, published in the Wine into Water issue of Irreantum. Also: 3 poems in Dialogue: A Journal Of Mormon Fall 2021 issue – and you can hear me read 2 of them on a special Dialogue in Review podcast episode here! – or watch it on youtube! My readings / commentary come at [35:10] & about [40:45] but treat yourself to the readings /art from the other panelists, they did amazing work!

Publications: Touchstones, Warp & Weave, Utah Life Magazine, Silver Birch Press, Psaltery & Lyre. A chapbook published through Salt Lake Community College – free download here! A poem called “Murmuration” included on the RadioACTive radio show in Salt Lake.
