I’m so pleased that I got the latest issue of Blue Unicorn in the mail this week. The editors previously published me in their February issue, and I am so impressed by the quality of the poetry in the magazine. It’s one of those magazines where I read through all the other work and I like it all—not something I can say about every single literary journal I pick up.
The new issue features my sonnet for Sleeping Beauty: “Briar Rose.” I encourage you to buy yourself a copy.

I’ve recently had a couple other confirmations trickle down, and I am so excited to tell you that I have two poems forthcoming in The Maynard. They’ve previously published some of my favourite writers/people, including Laura Ritland and Kayla Czaga, and I’m thrilled to become part of their ranks. Look for “Love and IKEA II” and “January is terrible so far” in the middle of April. Poetry month!
Even sooner than that, you will be able to read my poem “Beauty” in Rose Red Review, a beautiful fairy tale-themed online journal. The new issue, featuring my work, will go live on the first official day of spring!
Speaking of fairy tales, has anyone else been reading the new collection of Bavarian fairy tales by Franz Xaver von Schönwerth? Maria Tatar recently translated the tales into English and I have been savouring the wonderful and strange stories. If you’re looking for some wild new reading, I definitely recommend The Turnip Princess and Other Newly Discovered Fairy Tales!
