I am excited to have two poems in a new anthology for teens: Rhyme & Rhythm: Poems for Student Athletes, edited by Sarah J. Donovan.

The book is available now from Archer. It features some of your favorite poets and many new voices.

My poem “Running Stairs” is about my brief time on my high school fencing team. The second poem, “Snow Day,” is in the voice of a teen wrestler.
