Nanette Rayman Rivera’s Comments

The poem “Gad Lo*” came out of writing my memoir, which was just published.  A tooth really did break off for no reason I can fathom.  I’ve had bad luck with my teeth my whole life. 

My memoir is called to live on the wind, published by Scattered Light Publications. The book is available on amazon.com, here.

Pieces of my memoir in different form were nominated for a Pushcart Prize by Dragonfire (Drexel University), won the first Glass Woman Prize, won Best of Issue in Greensilk Journal, were published in The Berkeley Fiction Review and were included in the Dzanc anthology Best of the Web 2010.  A poem published in Sugar House Review was acknowledged in NewPages.com’s most recent Literary Reviews.  Other publications include Oranges & Sardines, MiPOesias, Stirring’s Steamiest Six, Blue Fifth Review, Unmoveable Feast, Thirteen Myna Birds, Pedestal, Monongahela Review, Chaparral, The Smoking Poet, Carousel, Up the Staircase, Wicked Alice, The Worcester Review, and Wilderness House Literary Review.
