Poems for 2017: About the project

11698523_10207442039195166_8177704915853133892_nFor a number of reasons, I have decided to publish all the poems I write in 2017 on this site. Some readers will be aware, and some will not, that once a writer posts a piece of writing online, it’s considered “published,” and so it can’t be published in most print or online journals.

But that’s okay with me, for now. I consider my decision a feminist one. My poems are my attempt to speak a truth, and to tell stories I feel called to share quickly, without waiting for gatekeepers.

Why self-publish?

Because the unconscious wants truth

Because this

Because this or this

Because this

I’ll let the poems try to say the rest. Thanks for reading.
