Written on Water

written on water

A few years ago, poet Helen Ruggieri posted a call for submissions for poetry that explored the landscape of and around the Allegheny River. I submitted a few poems and they were accepted.  Then, a series of events occurred that stalled the publication of the anthology. For a long time, it didn’t seem like this project was going to make it to the page.

But today, I’m happy to report that Helen’s persistence has paid off!  My poems join work by Julia Kasdorf, Phil Terman, and Maggie Anderson (among many others) in Written on Water: Writings about the Allegheny River, and while I have yet to see a hard copy, everything I have read through electronic versions looks wonderful.  And the cover is beautiful!

Written on Water: Writings about the Allegheny River is now available for preorder.   Take a look at the homepage of Mayapple Press for more details.  As for me, I can’t wait for my copy!
