New poem in Rabbit Poetry Journal 24: LGBTQIA+

I’m thrilled to have a poem in the LGBTQIA+ issue of Rabbit Poetry Journal, guest-edited by Michael Farrell. My poem ‘Vote Yes to Pineapple on Pizza’ is a found poem, compiled using media clippings from last year’s horrific postal-survey black hole. Writing this poem allowed me a small but necessary opportunity to take back control over some of the destructive narrative being spun about queer lives, and I’m particularly grateful that it found a home amongst the work of some of my favourite people and poets. There are poems in this issue by: Rae White, Stuart Barnes, Zenobia Frost, Jarad Bruinstroop, Quinn Eades, Jill Jones and so many more!

The issue is a wonderful survey of some of our most exciting up and coming, emerging, established, and all the in-between, queer voices. Go buy a copy and read it cover to cover and then urge someone else to do the same.

New poems in Verity La and Stylus Lit

It has been a productive start to the publishing year with two poems published in the past weeks, and two poems forthcoming in Woolf Pack #10 and Rabbit Poetry Journal LGBTQ+ issue.

The wonderful people at Verity La published my poem ‘Triage’ as part of their incredible Clozapine Clinic, and I got my first publication in Stylus Lit with my poem ‘time-lapse’. I’m thrilled to be sharing pages in these wonderful journals with some of my favourite people and poets, including Shastra Deo, and Stuart Barnes. Make sure you check out the rest of the wonderful poetry on offer while you’re there too!
