Happy to see my former poetry professor Denise Duhamel be named one of the finalists for this year’s National Book Critics Circle Award! I took Denise’s Poetic Techniques course as an undergrad at Florida International University a few years back. She’s a wonderful professor and a great poet. Big congrats!
I’ve just found out today that my short story “The Comforter,” which is based on tragic events that took place at a psychiatric hospital in Havana a few years ago, has been accepted for publication by the Southern Humanities Review! I’m excited to see this particular story in such a great journal.
The Summer issue of The Baltimore Review, which includes work by yours truly, is announced on newpages.com. Check it out if you haven’t!
