Next week, I'm back in the classroom, and am looking forward to finding some kind of routine. I've gotten off track with my writing, although I have to admit that it's been a rather productive summer, with lots of drafts of poems and prose awaiting revision and possible submission to journals.
I have been good about working on my course syllabi and setting up my new online classes for the fall semester, but still there's a little bit of disobedience left in me. My poem, "Surviving the Rust Belt Apocalypse"" has recently appeared in Poemeleon's latest issue on Disobedience. My poem joins other great works by poets Shaindel Beers, Heather Dobbins, Joshua Jones, Rebecca Foust, and Martha Silano. It's a wonderful issue!
