Second Thursday Open Mic: Susan Rooke: May 14
Susan Rooke writes poetry and fiction, and has had dozens of mainstream and
fantasy poems published in both print and online publications. Most
recently her work has appeared in Concho River Review, Naugatuck River
Review, Red Weather, Kentucky Review, The Avalon Literary Review, inkscrawl,
and the anthologies Pushing the Envelope: Epistolary Poems (ed. Jonas
Zdanys, Lamar University Press 2015), and Twice Upon a Time (Kind of a
Hurricane Press 2015).
A three-time Pushcart Prize nominee and a Best of the Net nominee, she also
had her poem "All Hallows" (which first appeared in Melancholy Hyperbole)
featured for Halloween on "Freshly Pressed" (WordPress.com). Her writing
career began much longer ago than she would care to admit with a
contest-winning fantasy short story in The Twilight Zone Magazine. She
hopes to publish her fantasy novel The Space Between in the coming year.
And this time she means it.
