First Place in Sheila-Na-Gig Poetry Contest

I’m honored to have won the Fall 2020 Sheila-Na-Gig Press Poetry Contest and to have had my poems  “Seed,” “Roots,” and “Cut” published in the Fall 2020 issue of Sheila-Na-Gig online.

I am beyond honored for my poems to appear along with those of the poets whose work also appears in this issue of Sheila-Na-Gig online.

These distinguished writers hail from every corner of the U.S., and their poems traverse every field and canyon of the human condition – connection and lineage, brokenness and sorrow, the wonder of love and flowers, the rusty nails of our aching world.

Reading the work of these poets reminded me what a fearsome gift it is to know this thing we call the human heart.

My most sincere thanks to Editor Hayley Mitchell Haugen and Associate Editor Jessica Higgins. And congratulations of my fellow poets whose beautiful work also appears in this issue of the journal.
