Kingdom Poets, Clive, Seren, Charis, more...

Here's a sprinkling of recent poems and notices. I've become bad about adding things here because blogs are in abeyance, but these are a few things that have popped up recently.

A glad thank you is due to D. S. Martin for a column in Kingdom Poets. He talks about and quotes from Seren of the Wildwood (Wiseblood Books, 2023) and then features my poem, "The Hand" (previous published in Artemis; reprint & audio at The New Decameron.)  

And here's another poem that is accruing shares on twitter:  "The Third, the Youngest Sson in Fairy Tales." Curtal sonnet that fools around with the collision between longish multisyllabic and monosyllabic rhymes. In The North American American Anglican.

Clive Hicks-Jenkins on the other side of the pond, writing on instagram about making the art 🎨 for Seren of the Wildwood (WisebloodBooks, 2023) 🌿, along with comments on the Seth Wright review in Front Porch Republic.

Loving fresh attention to Charis in the World of Wonders via the Well-Read Mom October read, yet not forgetting new Seren of the Wildwood (WisebloodBooks). Seth Wright's review, "A Plunge into the Mythic Wood," from Front Porch Republic: "Youmans’ gift for creating primordial archetypal images that stir the gut and fascinate the eye of the mind places her among the best of the poets." I need to post some clips from recent reviews soon!
