I’m currently reading Catherine Pierce’s Danger Days, Faylita Hicks’s HoodWitch, Ellen Bass’s Indigo, Diane Glancy’s Island of the Innocent, Kasey Jueds’s Keeper, and Allison Benis White’s The Wendys.



I’ve been rereading Lucie Brock-Broido’s Stay, Illusion, Larry Levis’s Winter Stars, Brigit Pegeen Kelly’s The Orchard. I keep going back to Jessica Jacobs’s Take Me with You, Wherever You’re Going, Vievee Francis’s Forest Primeval, and Maggie Smith’s The Well Speaks of Its Own Poison.



I enjoy reading Cave Wall, Image, Ruminate, Kenyon Review, The Georgia Review, The Missouri Review, Copper Nickel, The Cincinnati Review, and The Gettysburg Review. Favorite online journals include Thrush, The Adroit Journal, Waxwing, and of course diode.




I am perpetually rereading the poems of Emily Dickinson, novels by Charlotte Bronte and Charles Dickens (I am old school—I guess REALLY old school), and Mary Ruefle’s Madness, Rack, and Honey.
