My debut poetry collection, Give the Bard a Tetanus Shot, was released one year ago today. Aside from the pandemic, my life hasn’t really changed, but it was a lifelong dream come true and one of my happiest experiences. Thanks to my wonderful publisher, all the bookshops that stocked it, and to everyone who supported, read, bought, borrowed, blurbed, reviewed, or even just looked at my book!
