Poem by Erin Wilcox Published in Stoneboat

My prose poem “Humberto, I Just Saw the News” is featured in the spring issue of Stoneboat, a Wisconsin-based literary journal. This is a lovely issue full of talented writers, quite a few of whom attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage, with me. To read the text of my poem, please visit my blog. To purchase a copy of Stoneboat, please visit the journal’s website.

Kudos

Erin edited a two hundred-page memoir for me and returned it with embedded commentary as well as the expected editing. She has an ear for voice in a piece and is able to point out places the voice changes.”
