Check out my poem, "What’s Really Missing," in the new Silver Boomer Book Anthology, Harsh and the Heart-Patriot’s Dream! SB is also open to submissions for On Our Own-Widowhood for Smarties.

New Fairy Tales Anthology, Aurora Wolf Press, is available. My poem is before the index, a teaser for the rest of this large, beautiful book, a collection of stories, some for adults, some for older children. It is a beautiful book. My last name is incorrect in the first printing, although it has the correct website and says "Ms. Huddleston" in the bio. I hope this will be corrected as it is also visible in the "Look Inside" on Create Space, but you can read my poem on page 3! I wonder if anyone else has as much trouble with their names as I do.

Words: A Poetry and Prose Anthology, Old Mountain Press, is now in print.

How to Beat the Blues in Twelve Bars is up on THEMA due to my name being mistakenly printed in the journal as "Gwen" instead of "Wynne" Huddleston. The journal has a beautiful cover with awesome poems.
