I’m thrilled to collaborate with Word and Colour again (my poem “Tinaja” appeared in the journal in February). My new poem “Natural Behaviours” is now up on the site, in response to visual art by Nick Liefhebber. I feel very lucky to be a contributor to Word and Colour. As I’ve mentioned before, I love the journal’s mandate “to confront oppression or provide positive alternatives to stereotype.” The journal curates pieces of visual art, which are selected and then sent to writers who respond to the visual art. The resulting collaborations are exciting. I hope you’ll check it out!
