Welcome to the Watershed

Writing fiction and poetry–and whatever else, including marketing copy–alongside the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers. Work appears in many literary journals; a novel is in progress. If I’m not writing at my treadmill desk, you can find me on the slopes or the crags.

#BigPoetryGiveaway Recipients

Thanks to all who participated in April’s #BigPoetryGiveaway, a chain reaction initiated by Kelli Russell Agodon.

I wish I could afford to send books to everyone who commented. All the entries went into a soup bowl, and my husband drew out two names for each book—one winner, and one backup, in case the winner didn’t respond.

(Okay, so I’m kind of lousy at holding the camera still, and the reflection on his glasses makes him look a little psycho (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but really, he’s a nice guy. Someone you can trust to make a fair selection.)

Brian Wong won my chapbook, Wild Thing in Our Known World.

Diane Kendig won Kathleen Flenniken’s Plume. I’ll be sending copies to each of these winners.

If you’re intrigued, both books can be found on Amazon, or can be ordered from your friendly local independent bookstore.

Thanks for coming by, and thanks to Kelli for the idea. Cheers to poetry!
