Publications

RICHSTONE_ROBIN_COVER_LMMy chapbook, The Museum of Fresh Starts, is now available! You can order it here. If you live in Ann Arbor you can buy a copy at Nicola’s Books.

 

 

 

 

Here are links to read some of my poems in the magazines that originally published them — you might enjoy looking at other work in these issues, too. Wild Goose Poetry Review is an online magazine; the others are print magazines with content available online. Many magazines have an online presence for submissions or subscriptions, but no texts; or the texts of back issues are available, but not current ones. I add links as I find more places where the poems appear.
