A huge shout-out to my friend and co-editor Ruby R. Wilson and her husband Jim for handling all our anthology business while I was on extended “family leave” in North Carolina. The day my parents began their move into a different assisted living facility, Poetry of Presence was officially released. Such timing! Book orders have been pouring in ever since. As you can see below, the Wilson living room has turned into a shipping department.
Thanks, too, to all of you customers who have ordered books directly from us instead of, say, Amazon. We’re doing our best to fill your orders in timely fashion, though we keep running out of inventory. A good problem to have! Please bear with us….
In case you’re still wondering where to buy your copy of Poetry of Presence, please do consider purchasing through our website. We receive more proceeds from each book that way than if you purchase elsewhere. We then reinvest the proceeds in permission fees so that our publisher can produce more books. Your direct purchase will help this book stay in print!

Plans are in the works for a major Poetry of Presence reading at the Southern California Poetry Festival. The Festival will be held October 28-29 at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, CA.
The reading will feature a number of POP authors and be the culminating event of the Festival. More details to come as we learn them. Our thanks to the Festival organizers, Donna Hilbert and Sonia Greenfield, for their generous support of mindfulness poetry.
Today we’re officially releasing the book trailer for Poetry of Presence: An Anthology of Mindfulness Poems. We hope you enjoy it—we made it just for you. (Popcorn optional.)
Many of you have been asking exactly when the book will be out and how you might purchase it. As soon as we know, we’ll be yodeling the date from the mountaintops, dropping leaflets from hot-air balloons, and skywriting with poetry drones.
