There’s five more days to go in the Goodreads giveaway for my upcoming short story collection Unseaming: twenty paperback advance reading copies are up for grabs. To promote that giveaway, I thought I would expand it with a few more.   Starting today and continuing through July 31, to coincide with the end of the Unseaming giveaway, five of my

A year ago, during the Kickstarter campaign to create this magazine, I offered as a reward an omnibus collection of my poetry in ebook form.

May 12th, 2014 2 Comments

See what you think:   • “Selected Program Notes from the Retrospective Exhibition of Theresa Rosenberg Latimer” by
