NEW POEMS: VIDEO READINGS ON
THE WILD SONNETS | ABOUT
As a writer, I have always been interested in the sonnet, while being equally intrigued with the notion that certain great poets either created or claimed a variation of the form as their own. In 2015, I decided to pull together some of the stylistic tendencies of my own work, and fashion them into a version of the sonnet that was distinctly mine.
Since then, I have written over 200 Wild Sonnets, which I have published into two volumes of 100 each, and supplemented with a digital edition that includes all the poems currently in print. I also leverage social media to present a selection of the poems on an almost daily basis – most notably, Instagram, where I frequently post the poems in rotation, and add new entries when I think they are ready for an audience.
I write 2-3 new Wild Sonnets every week – and plan to continue the project as long as life, breath and my own wild mind allow.
