Happy New Year 2023! And happy news! Issue 16 of MacQueen’s Quinterly is out!

MacQueen's Quinterly

Filled with excellent work by fellow poets, it makes for a great read! I am particularly chuffed to have 3 of my micro-haibun included from “Censored Poems,” a series in progress. My heartfelt thanks to Clare MacQueen for giving them a home.
