My poetry is going to the moon! Four of my poems will be included in the Writers on the Moon project along with other authors and artists on a mission to the moon, late 2021. One hundred twenty-five slots of poetry, fiction, and more will be launched on a digital data card in a lunar time capsule where it will remain permanently.

This lunar time capsule project featuring writers from around the world is joining NASA payloads on Astrobotic's Peregrine Mission One, launching in July 2021 on a United Launch Alliance (ULA) rocket to the Moon. It will remain there permanently, a time capsule for the future to provide a bit of insight to the readers of tomorrow into what humanity looked like in 2021. This payload will ride on the first Astrobotic lander--and the first commercial lander--to reach the moon.

Wondering how the launch and Moon landing will look? Here’s a video simulation.
