Peter's writing has appeared in magazines and newspapers, journals and websites, and on oddly shaped and strangely discolored pieces of paper stacked in obscure places. It has won a couple of awards, and on occasion, even his mother likes it. You can find examples right here, in New Mexico Magazine, and elsewhere in places like Ultrarunning Magazine, The Albuquerque Journal, Humanities Magazine, The Santa Fe Reporter, Thinking Highways, the Faircloth Review, The Wall Street Journal, The Molotov Cocktail, Medium Curated, Potluck Magazine, Abyss & Apex, and on websites scattered across the net.
