My flash piece "Model Survivors" is up now at Jellyfish Review. I was angry when I wrote this and still am. The title is derived from a Tweet by Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo Movement. You can read it here. Reader, please also consider checking out ways to support survivors:
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.
The state of things has me feeling some type of way™ and I find myself channeling my "fed-upness" into satire. Thanks to Defenestration Magazine for publishing "Pamphlet for New Humans: The United States Version."
"How to Heal a Family in Three Easy Steps" is live at Fiction Southeast. Step-by-step instructions. With examples. So easy, right?
My prose poem "The Possible Causes of Your Suffering" is live now at Paper Darts, which is one of the most beautiful places on the internet. My piece is also wonderfully illustrated by artist Nusha Ashjaee. "The Possible Causes of Your Suffering" was a finalist for Glimmer Train's "Very Short Fiction Award."
My chapbook In the Garden of Broken Things is available!!! Huge thanks to Sandy Benetiz at Flutter Press for publishing this brief collection of some favorite pieces of mine. The cover was graciously designed by Jeffrey McKee with a gorgeous illustration by Yoonmi Nam. Thanks to fellow poet Alyse Bensel for the beautiful blurb! Buy my chapbook here.
