Now Available: I Thought I Heard A Cardinal Sing

I’m thrilled to have two poems included in I Thought I Heard A Cardinal Sing, a new anthology that celebrates Appalachian writers and particularly those from the Appalachian region of Ohio. Kari Gunter-Seymour, who edited this collection, wrote:

“Within these pages you will find a lavish mix of voices—Affrilachian, Indigenous, non-binary and LGBTQ; from teens to those creatively aging; poets in recovery, some with disabilities or developmental differences; emerging and well established; some living in the state, others from assorted locations throughout the country—all with a deep connection to Appalachian Ohio. The work speaks honestly and proudly as it represents Ohio’s Appalachian population, providing examples of honor, endurance, courage, history, love of family, the land; and provides evidence of how even against the odds our people continue to thrive, to work hard to build awareness and overcome mainstream America’s negative response to those with a strong Appalachian heritage.”

I Thought I Heard A Cardinal Sing is published by Sheila-Na-Gig, and you can order the book through their website:
