Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re having a wonderful week. For today, I have a fun announcement!

Vocal Poets announced their 2019 “Poetry-in-Motion” contest back at the end of March, in honor of National Poetry Month. My poem, “Bad Omens,” was one entry of nearly 1,000 entries to Vocal Poets’ 2019 “Poetry-in-Motion” Poetry Contest. One winner and three runners-up were selected for this contest.

(You may remember my poem, “Bad Omens,” which I shared here, as an example of creating a writing prompt, and writing a poem from it.)

I’m pleased to share today that “Bad Omens” was one of the three runners-up poems selected, which included a small royalty, publication, and an absolutely beautiful visual representation of an excerpt of the poem.

You can view the entire poem, “Bad Omens,” here.

You can see the video created by the very talented, Julianne Waber, of an excerpt of my poem, here.

And last, but certainly not least, here is the list of winners, their poems, and the visualizations of their work, here.


This is now listed under my publications, as well. If you’re interested in seeing other poems I’ve recently had published, or work that is forthcoming, you can see all of that here. (And my full portfolio, of all of my published writings, is here!)
