So excited that my poem "Sickle" was selected as the 1st place winner in the Utah Pride Center Poetry and Prose Writing Contest! There will be a reading featuring all the winners on April 4; Salt Lakers, I'd love to see you there. "Sickle" is currently published in Black Heart Magazine and will be re-published in the fabulous local queer poetry magazine Peculiar.
If you like "Sickle" or my other work, please consider donating or sharing to help me make it to the Lambda Literary Writers' Retreat. I can't make it without your help, and the Retreat would help me continue to develop my writing while surrounded by other queer poets and writers. Thanks for all your support <3
