NEW PUBLICATIONS : Poetic and Travel

It has been a few crazy months, with not only commissioned articles and poetry submissions, but also proofreading a dissertation and translating poetry.

And, indeed, my poetry and travel writing continue to appear in journals and on websites around the world. Spend the afternoon browsing through the list (with links) below, journeying to Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands, Chile, Colombia and other destinations between Alaska and Tierra del Fuego.

…. and until we next meet …..

NEW PUBLICATIONS : Poetic and Travel

A new year has begun, and with it new beginnings.

Weights of past years have been being lifted, clearing the path for more adventures. And that worry-energy I can now focus upon what matters most to me: my poetic voice. This year, I am sure, will open the way to not only more wondrous landscapes, but also more achievements in the realm of the literary world.

And here we are once more, rounding up my most recent publications – both literary and travel expressions (below, with links).

While away a snowy (or rainy) day and escape to Peru, Ecuador and the enchanted Galapagos Islands (including a series of articles on the isles’ stunning fauna). And this month, there is something a bit additional: two essays on Ecuadorian writers, plus a translation of a story by a third author of that Andean country.

And until we next meet …..

NEW PUBLICATIONS : Poetic and Travel

It has been awhile since I was last in this corner of cyberspace (13 December 2016, to be precise). I want to offer my apologies.

The reason is that during these past few months, I was involved in a large, dream project. (More on that in a future installment of my publications round-up!)

But once again, I am picking up the threads of other creations – and I look forward to sharing with you many more articles, poetry and photo-essays here at Latin America Wanderer.

If you have any suggestions or requests for future topics, please leave them in the comments below.

Despite being caught up in that huge project, my poetry and travel writing still continued to appear in journals and on websites around the world. Spend the afternoon browsing through the list (with links) below …. and until we next meet …..
