Old Bunhill Fields Burial Ground Published!

I am pleased to announce that a poem I wrote back in 2018, while I was wandering around London, titled Old Bunhill Fields Burial Ground, has been published in the Friends Journal. This one draws heavily upon my Quaker upbringing so it’s not the most accessible. Friends Journal is one of the few publications where it’ll be read by people who’ll get the references.

When my contributor copies arrived in the mail earlier this week, I got more than a little flutter in my belly as I saw my words framed so beautifully in this magazine that I was holding in my hands, still smelling of fresh ink.

Thank yous to the Friends Journal for publishing, to all my workshop poets for helping me revise and to my parents and their parents and all my grandparents before them, no matter how great, for making me who I am.
