Finalist in The Atlanta Review International Poetry Contest

I am humbled and honored to have two poems chosen as finalists in Atlanta Review’s International Poetry Contest, with the winner, and 22 other finalists. The poems are: "Thin Places," and "Thought Experiment," both of which appear in my next full-length poetry book, forthcoming from Salmon Poetry.  It’s a competitive contest, with over a thousand entrants, and the shortlist judged by the esteemed Dan Vera. The poems will all be published in their wonderful biannual Print Journal, appearing this Fall. Please help me congratulate the winner, Kurt Luchs, and the other finalists, shown below in their press release:
