My poems “long story short” and “sawdust protected our torsos” which appeared in Five Fleas in 2022 have been nominated as eligible for the 2023 Dwarf Stars award and are appearing in this year’s print anthology. Also, The closest traitor was nominated to the longlist for the 2023 Rhysling Award in the short category.

My poem Serafina’s Sparklicious Adventure was one of The Order of the Hot Potato selections for this quarter at Bewildering Stories for the amount of controversy it stirred up. I am fine with that.
