List of publications/event/media mentions for the month of October 2021

October has been a month of shedding the layers of self-quarantine and isolation and going out and meeting people in person for events, festivals, etc. October has also been a milestone month this year as it was the publication month for my first chapbook “My Body Is Not an Apology” by Finishing Line Press. I was thrilled to share the #unboxingvideo of my author copies with my friends and family from the lit community and was overwhelmed with the warmth and support. My happiness knew no bounds when my #chapbook was trending at no 5 in the Asian American Poetry under New Releases on

 I was blessed to be part of the Arts and Poetry festival this month namely Paterson Poetry Festival, Newark Arts Festival also the Hartford Book Festival, which was virtual for my part. Amongst the notable publications, I’m thankful to Maria for publishing a promotion for my chapbook in the July_September Issue of International Writers Journal. Also thanks to the Poet Laureate of Brookline, Massachusetts(2017-20), Zvi A Sesling for giving me space amongst the esteemed featured poets in the Fall edition of the Muddy Poetry Review. I also was featured in the Poetry Podcast hosted and founded by the brilliant Uk based Damian Donelly called “Eat The Storms ‘.

 EIC and co-founder of Poets Wear PradaPress, Roxanne Hoffmann was kind enough to feature my poetry reading on her #podcast and the highlight of the month was the acceptance of our event “Creative Activism in Words & Action: Writers & Activists at the United Nations” got accepted for the AWP22 Conference. 

November brings a new wave of excitement as start working towards the #publication of my debut #fulllengthpoetry collection “My Body Lives Like a Threat” coming out by FlowerSong press. The press is managed by the former McAllen, Texas Poet Laureate and Founder of the Valley International Poetry Festival (VIPF), Edward Viduarre.

 Looking forward to an exciting and poetic November!!!

 Happy Poetry!!
