Very happy to announce that I'll have a new flash fiction piece forthcoming in Jellyfish Review titled "Model Survivors." This is a dream publication for me, and if you don't have JR on your radar, do yourself a favor and check out Kathy Fish's "Collective Nouns for Humans Caught in the Wild." It's important.
I read some poems from my newest book at the Myers Hotel Revue with musical accompaniment by some really talented musicians. It's the closest I'll ever get to being in a band. It was also one of the best experiences I've ever had. Huge thanks to Heidi Gluck and everyone I shared the stage with. What a special night!
It's been a busy semester, so I'm just getting around to making a bit of noise about Charlotte Seley's new book The World is My Rival. I'm so honored she asked me to share the stage on such a special night. Other featured readers were Courtney Faye Taylor and Cassandra Gillig. It was such a great night and I'm happy to have this book in my hands. Also, thanks to Chad for these pics :)
Studying and prepping for my doctoral exam was one of THE hardest things I've had to do. Honestly, I feel like a new human. It really feels like I've crawled out of some dark cave and I'm just now seeing what the world looks like for the first time. So this is what a Sunday afternoon feels like. Anyway, now I'm onto the next stage of the process, which is the dissertation stuff. There are many things I love about Twitter, but by far my favorite aspect is that you can create your own little community. I've decided to basically archive my entire dissertation process and progress @seemedissertate (I haven't figured out if this is a good idea or not. I'll keep you posted). If you're into that kind of thing, you know what to do.
