Congrats to these LM staffers!
Ginny Kaczmarek, Assistant Editor in Poetry: “My poem, Lament, was the featured Poem of the Day on the Louisiana Poetry Project website on January 4, the anniversary of my friend Helen’s death. In it, I try to grapple with living in one of the most violent cities in America, especially when the violence becomes personal. I also have a multibook review, “Required Reading,” a discussion of six excellent books of poetry by women poets, upcoming in the March/April issue of Women’s Review of Books.”
Suzanne Kamata, Fiction Co-Editor: “An excerpt from The Screaming Divas, the unpublished novel that I referred to in my Literary Reflections essay Writing After Midnight was published in Hunger Mountain.”
Nicole Stellon O’Donnell, Column Editor: “My novel-in-poems, Steam Laundry, is available this month from Boreal Books, an imprint of Red Hen Press. Based on archival research, it tells the story of Sarah Ellen Gibson, who followed her husband north in 1898. Gibson left her husband and fled to Fairbanks with another man in 1903. Two of the poems from Steam Laundry, “River Town” and “Raven,” appear in the Winter Solstice issue of Cirque (pages 63 and 64).”
