Exciting news! Another New Calligraphy has accepted Stereometry for publication! This book is unlike anything I've ever written before and it's difficult for even me to describe. Because the book spans such a large amount of time following the grieving process, there is an emotional trajectory woven throughout. In the end, Stereometry is about healing.
Ultimately, it combines poetry, prose, and mathematics and seeks answers to the question "How do we measure our own bodies?" An early version of Stereometry appeared as a short story in Fourteen Hills and later, some emerging prose poems were published in Visitant Lit.
Like most writers, I process most things that happen in my life through my writing. It's been a long journey trying to find the most appropriate form for these words, but I'm so comforted that Another New Calligraphy wants to help me share them with others. Stay tuned.
I like the idea of continually pushing the boundaries of my own writing and am very excited that my visual essay "Notitia" is now live up at A Bad Penny Review. You can watch it here.
Much thanks to Naima Tokunow and Puerto del Sol for publishing my very short essay "From Where Do You Speak?" as part of their Black Voices Series. A mini-interview follows the essay. It deals indirectly with imposter syndrome, which is one of the most challenging aspects about academia. Thankful to BVS for giving space to this and so much amazing writing by black-identified writers, including these pieces by I.S. Jones and Simone Savannah <3
