Poetry

Published poems.

My education in Poetry gives me unique perspectives when applied to blogging, editing, creative writing, or other business communications. In addition to my own publication, Bathos Journal, my work has been included in several poetry anthologies such as Graffiti Rag, Mike and Dale’s Younger Poets, Columbia Poetry Review, and Spoon River Poetry Review.
