My full-length book, Where We Think It Should Go, can be yours via Octopus Books, Small Press Distribution, or Amazon. We better celebrate these hard copies while we can. When I'm not writing poetry, I teach amazing young people who are blind. I believe in a healthier future.

Happy summer. Oakland has it.

I've been meaning to post some photos of some great student art from my school's art show in May. Here's the first installment.

These days I'm reading submissions for RealPoetik with Lily Brown. We'll be taking over the reins this summer from current editor Ana Bozicevic. RealPoetik has been around as a listserv, now also a web journal, since 1994. If you would like to submit poems, please email 3-5 to clairebeckerATgmailDOTcom. Otherwise, send me an email--I'll add you to the listserv. You'll receive approximately one poem per week in your personal email inbox. If you've never been a part of a listserv, this is a wonderful opportunity.
