Umbrella

I am ‘featured poet’ in the first issue of Umbrella, edited by American poet, Kate Benedict .

This means you can read nine poems by me, mainly (as you'll note) in mystical and spiritually questioning mode. And, in addition, I'm the subject of an interview conducted by Katy Evans-Bush.

It seems to me like an excellent debut for the zine. There are some strong poems and prose pieces in there, with a wide variety of poets and styles, and it’s very well-produced. Looks great! I’m really pleased to be a part of it.

Good going, Rob. Haven't read everything closely yet, but so far I do like "Temptations," "Room" and "Your Soul." I will have to go back and read the other poets, too. nice looking zine. best

Congratulations, seems like a good new zine and your poems are lovely.

Interesting interview as well.

Here's hoping for lots more features in the future.

Congratulations. You're obviously on a roll; may it be long and moss-free.

Thanks, everyone. Glad you enjoyed Umbrella.

I'm never moss-free for long...

I found this late, but both the zine and the pomes look great, Rob.

I'll be back.
