Other publication information (Books, academic presentations, etc.) can by found in tabs above, by clicking on the                         Publications tab.

Where applicable, clicking on the journal name will take you to my poem or to the journal's web site. Journal titles

      that are in bold lead to my poem.

Some of the journal links lead to journals that are no longer publishing, but I linked to them because the web site             continues and there remains on it pieces that are still available to read.
