Hats Off! to Karen Paul Holmes whose poem is included in a new craft book, The Practicing Poet, edited by Diane Lockward of Terrapin Books. Also, the editor of Lascaux Review selected two poems from Karen's book, No Such Thing as Distance, to feature in the journal. Karen also had poems recently published in Emrys Journal and in Anesthesiology (Journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists), which named her as a finalist for their Letheon Prize. Karen was featured at the Georgia Poetry Society's summer meeting, and she read at the Decatur Book Festival (metro Atlanta) in early September. Finally, The Bind published "Navigating the Personal in Poetry: Glenda Council Beall in Conversation with Karen Paul Holmes."
