2014 Spring Issue of ROAR Magazine: A Journal of the Literary Arts by Women Now Available!



I am proud to announce the release of ROAR‘s newest issue now available for purchase! Particularly exciting for me, this issue marks my second major contribution to ROAR– the first being in 2013 when they published my poem “Like Water” and the second being my inclusion in the masthead as a ROAR Poetry Editor. In addition I help manage the website and blog.

With an exciting mix of style of artist intention, this issue showcases a broad range of women’s voices. Included among the literary contributions is an interview I conducted with Diane Raptosh, which will be posted here in full in the upcoming days. Visit and @RoarLiteraryJ for previews of the literary works!
