The Great Write Off: Support Non-Profit Literary Organizations in Michigan


This week I’ll be writing prose poems for The Great Write Off, an annual fundraiser to support several non-profit literary organizations based in Michigan (Dzanc Books, Fiction Writers Review, 826michigan, InsideOut Detroit, The National Writers Series, and the Neutral Zone).

If you’d like to support me in this effort, just click on the Dzanc link below and scroll down to my name at the bottom.

No donation is too small, and every penny will help support non-profit literary arts. 1,000 thanks and words ahoy!

4th Grade Logic featured as PBS NewsHour Weekly Poem

I wrote this piece several years ago when I tutored with America Reads in an elementary school. One day a student I was working with proclaimed something about dogs and bones and dinosaurs, which got me buzzing about my recent trip to the Natural History Museum at the University of Michigan. When I visited the museum, a ‘birds of prey’ exhibit was flying.  Although awed by the snowy white owl, I couldn’t quite work it into the piece.
