I recently had the good fortune to have my poem “Army Wife” get double honors. It was published in the renowned New York journal Stone Canoe and also won that journal's Veterans Writing Prize for 2017.
Here is the cover of the issue in which that poem appeared.
I would like to thank the students in my Poetry Workshop class at the University of Northern Iowa in the spring semester of 2016. That class only had 7 students and so I had the welcome opportunity to write and workshop poems along with them. “Army Wife” was one of those poems, and the students — Amanda Husak, Andrew Richman, Claire Bowling, Lexi Yost, Molly White, Sarah Smith, and Ven Batista — all gave me insightful workshop feedback and practical advice. Thanks, guys!
Many thanks also to Phil Memmer, editor of Stone Canoe. Excellent journal issue as always, Phil! Keep up your wonderful work.
