List of Publications/Events/Readings for the month of December 2020

I’m so proud to share the list of publications, events and news for the month of December 2020.

December has been super special to me as one of my poems got nominated for the coveted Pushcart Prize and also the announcement of my first full-length collection soon to be published by the Texas-based FlowerSong press in 2021. I’m chuffed to be published by the press managed by the former poet laureate of McAllen, Texas, and also super excited to share the space in the author gallery with the former US Poet Laureate and Chancellor of the Academy of American poets, Juan Felipe Herrera. The ending month of the year also brought a flurry of poetry readings as I got to attend numerous poetry reading events as a featured poet.

To be featured alongside Maria Lisella, Poet Laureate for Brooklyn and 2020 Fellow of Academy of American Poets has been a high point. In addition to this, I also got the opportunity to be featured in the SETU International Women’s Live and Anita Nahal’s Tandoor Gupshup poetry reading events. I also got nominated as the “Author of the Month” by NY based journal  Spillwords. December has been a month since the start of my maiden poetry workshop at my son’s elementary school. I was also super proud to see my poems published in the esteemed “The Rising Phoenix Review” journal, which I have been following and reading since the early days of my writing. The year winded down with the poetry acceptance in the coveted Los Angeles based journal “Life and Legends”, winter edition, and also my acceptance as an Associate Editor for the journal from 2021.
