I studied poetry under distinguished poet Lynn Veach Sadler as part of the Gilbert-Chappell Distinguished Poets Series sponsored by the North Carolina Poetry Society which pairs up student poets with established poets as mentors. In 2015, the series published an anthology of poems from participants which included five of my own writings. Purchase a copy and help support this great project.
The anthology is named Witness: Appalachia to Hatteras and will publish a new volume every year.
My poems included were:
- "Carolina Sky"
- "Not an Entrance, Not an Exit"
- "Old Mason Jar"
- "Today I Explain"
- "Why Some Leave".
