National Poetry Month/Verse Wisconsin online!

This year National Poetry Month means more to me than ever since I just had my first poem in an online journal, Verse Wisconsin published. Verse Wisconsin also allows audio versions of the poem, read by the authors. This is the first time I've accomplished that, too! (Thanks to Jim's recording expertise!)

My poem, Alternate History is published along with some very distinguished company, including the current poet laureate of Wisconsin, Marilyn L. Taylor, a former Milwaukee Poet Laureate, and FIU's own Denise Duhamel. This is the second time I've appeared in a poetry journal with Ms. Duhamel; she contributed a poem to FIU's Vox, a literary magazine, some years ago where I also had two poems published.

My favorite poem in the issue so far is Nathan Graziano's poem, Elizabeth Graziano.
