Poetry Forthcoming in Appalachian Journal

My poem, “Cover Us With Mountains,” will be in the Spring/Summer 2017 issue (#43.3-4) of Appalachian Journal, which just went to print last week.

Appalachian Journal, which has also featured Ron Rash and Roxane Gay,  is the interdisciplinary, peer reviewed, academic, cultural, literary and “regional studies” journal of Appalachian State University. The journal is the perfect placement for my poem, which was inspired by events surrounding the 2014 Elk River, WV Chemical Spill and Water Crisis.
