2019 writing vacation in SW Louisiana and East Texas

You never know what curves life will throw you at the last minute…

I’ve been talking about my two-week writing vacation in Tulsa this June, in a cottage on the banks of the Arkansas River, since I booked it last November. Unfortunately, with the flooding of the Arkansas River in the area of Tulsa where I’d be staying, I needed to make some alternate plans. So, I’ve made alternate plans for a new locale for my poetry work: half on a ranch on the Texas/Louisiana border, and half on the banks of the lake in beautiful Lake Charles, Louisiana, always one of my favorite places.


As most readers of this blog know, I evolved from 5-8 page poems to book-length works about two years ago, spending about a year working on AMONG THE NEWLY FALLEN (available now internationally via Amazon–go check it out and order one!), and then spending the last 10 months or so working on a new 60-page long-form poem, RIVERSIDE FUGUE. The latter is about 85% written, and I’ll be finishing it among the cattle (see pic below) in East Texas, a few miles from the state line with LA, and then editing it in beautiful Lake Charles, Louisiana. No horse-racing at Delta Downs this trip, alas, but that will just give me more time to apply to the poetry.



I’ll be gone from June 1-June 12. Text me if you need me for anything—-I’ll only be online once every few days, if that. I hope to have RIVERSIDE FUGUE ready for publication sometime in the Fall.

See you again in mid-June….
