I’m very honored to be published in the Vilnius Review this month!
The editor—Marius Burokas—was recently interviewed in a local Lithuanian arts and culture newspaper, Bernardinai, mentioning the growing desire of poets and writers in the diaspora to bridge the gap with their native counterparts. Marius was kind enough to mention me as one the poets in the US and Canada who seek to participate in future Lithuanian-sponsored book fairs and readings.
Happy to share that one of my White Stockings poems has been shortlisted (among ten finalists) for the Berfrois Poetry Prize.
So Spuyten Duyvil is putting out a sizable anthology of some extremely talented and activist voices in poetry today. So grateful to be included in this book.
Resist Much, Obey Little Anthology
I’m so pleased to announce that Rain Taxi has published an interview by Michael Stephens about White Stockings.
Recently published in VIDA. Essay about White Stockings and conflict in Ukraine.
Honored to be featured in this article in the Vilnius Review alongside many contemporary Lithuanian/American/Canadian writers. Many thanks to Violeta Kelertas!
Back in March, I was interviewed for The Conversant by Virginia Konchan.
We discussed my new poetry collection, White Stockings, identity and displacement, and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
