Holy. I should not start this blog post with this, but I’m going to anyway. You would not believe how many tries it took for me to come up with a title for this post. It was truly remarkable, which, is probably why I’m remarking upon it 🙂

I am incredibly excited to share the news that my poem, “Poltergeist” which was originally published in Star*Line magazine last year has been nominated for an Aurora Award.
