New Poem Commissions

I believe poems should reach people, tell them a story, coax people to feel them AND understand them. Yes, they can be complicated; yes, there can be more underneath, but, first, I want my poems to be about communication.

It’s an honor to be commissioned, recently, to write for organizations I’m a fan of like the Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center and Humanities Nebraska who not only help me to write something I’m proud of but display them so beautifully.

Thanks, too, Kearney Public Library, Legal Aid of Nebraska, American Job Center of Lancaster and Saunders Counties, and others who brought me in to write poems last year–and to a few coming up these next few months which I’m working on now!
