2017 Poetry Publications

While there are a few pieces still awaiting final consideration and publication this year, the following list reflects my poetry published between January to December 2017, Year of the Rooster. This year I had 11 poems in traditional magazines, documentaries, and other projects, which I consider a very good level of output.

Additionally, 34+ new poems were presented on my blogs and Patreon. These occupy a peculiar interstitial space: They typically won’t qualify as “official” publications for consideration in various literary awards, fellowships and the like, but these poems are also now considered ineligible for publication except as a reprint.

My thanks to everyone involved for all of your continued support. It’s been a joy to challenge our ideas of what Lao art has been and must be, and I look forward to many more years ahead with all of you. Here is my list for 2017:
