Forces of Nature


Last night I received an email from the editors at Platte Valley Review that they will be included two of my poems in their special "Forces of Nature" issue! So excited :-) They're going to be publishing "The Dance", which is a poem about a tree in a hurricane (as a metaphor for miscarriage/grief), and also "The Mother of Sweet Texas Onions," which is a poem about farm workers, pesticides, and birth defects.

OOph, ok, so they're not uplifting cute Katie poems, but I think they appropriately go with the forces of nature theme.

Anyway, I'm excited. PVR is the lit journal from the University of Nebraska - Kearney. You can check them out here
