Poem Published in Minerva Rising

IMG_0769I’m proud to have a poem published in the latest issue of Minerva Rising Literary Journal! I’m loving the cover and the content of this food-themed issue, with all writing and artwork by women. I’m mainly a prose writer, so it’s an honor to get a poem out into the world. My piece, “Study in Wine and Stone,” is a loose sestina about Bordeaux, France, inspired by an assignment that my friend Kate O’Brien gave to our writing group, The Burning Baguettes, when we used to meet once a week over pizza and wine in our friend’s apartment in downtown Bordeaux to workshop our writing. Kate provided the words for the end of each of the six lines and challenged us to write a sestina about our adopted city. Almost a decade (and countless revisions) later, my poem has found a home!
