I really do like the cover of my new poetry chapbook “How it Happens, ” don’t you?
A huge thank you to artist Arthur Johnstone and designer JK Fowler who is also the founder and Executive Director of Nomadic Press (publisher) for their beautiful work!
My book baby is almost in my hands and it can soon be in yours as well. You can preorder signed or unsigned copies of my book here: HOW IT HAPPENS BY JOYCE E. YOUNG
The book launch will be on Saturday September 22, 2018 at 7 pm at the Oakland Peace Center, 111 Fairmount Avenue, Oakland, CA 94611. Come to the launch to hear some of what is inside the book cover. I may even reveal who the lizard is (smile). You can purchase a copy there and I will gladly sign your book if you wish.
Some of my fellow Nomadic Press authors will read their work that evening, too. It’s going to be a fun time with words, writers, food, books and good mojo. You don’t want to miss this goodness.
I’m happy to share that my poem “Return” has been published in the current issue of WORDPEACE

Had a great time reading at Beast Crawl 2014 last night. The Beast Crawl Collective rocks!
Writers Tony Press, Robert Pesich, Rafael Jesus Gonzalez, and yours truly took the stage and held the audience rapt with our wordsmithing at Spice Monkey. We worked it, to say the least. I had an absolute blast.
Ah…what a night!
