Plum Tree Tavern

Sunset in Fairview, SC

Plum Tree Tavern has accepted for publication my poem “Twilight,” which describes a moment at the end of the day. Editor Russell Streur wrote that it will appear a month or so down the road,” so I’m not sure when. Plum Tree is a journal publishing poetry about nature with an interest in ecology.

The guidelines read “The editor...cautions the writer to carefully consider the placement of the ego into work.” This inspired me to think about our ego and the way it affects nature. When we do things that result in the extinction of one species and then another, we’re working our way down a list of species that includes ourselves. I’ve written a blog on the subject. It is scheduled to appear July 12, 2020 on the Columbia Writers Workshop II website.
