Why should you attend?

How Birds Fly wrestles with fundamental questions of how to adapt to the various roles in which we may find ourselves over the course of a lifetime. There’s nothing coy or hesitating about this collection. Each turn is as unexpected as it is precise, each image as emotionally resonant as it is intellectually complex.”—Charlotte Pense, author of Many Small Fires 

[Not In Heaven] won the 2017 Fool for Poetry Chapbook competition.

“The poems in Music Lesson are organized into movements [which] encompass the seasons, years passing in the life of a family, losses and joys, the wonders of the natural world and of existence itself, leading the reader to moments of discovery.”—FutureCycle Press
