Poetry in The Ocean State Review

Alongside two of my literary mentors, Eric Pankey and Sally Ball, my poems Beating Belly and Proof are in the latest issue The Ocean State Review. In Volume 7, Number 1 daughterrarium is also reviewed by Sheryl Rivett where she says,

the reader becomes witness. We observe the narrator’s journey through trauma, a journey in which she exposes her deepest vulnerabilities, her rage, and her quest for agency, as she keenly observes every emotion, every image, every angle of the lived experience of pain. In the suffocating parameters of trauma, she survives—and we want her to survive. We take the journey with her because she dares us to keep observing, to stay with her as she courageously processes her pain.

Even more, Beating Belly is nominated for a Pushcart Prize!
