The good thing about these long disappearances is that it means I’ve been up to good things. The bad thing is that I often neglect to share it here. If you’re ever looking for more of a day-to-day from me, my Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram pages are probably the better spots. This place is more like a hub or a repository, I suppose, though I hope to start sharing a little bit more about my professional world here in the coming months.
In the meantime, some announcements:
- I’m now editing for Heavy Feather Review. They’re good people, and I’m very happy to be a part of a lit journal again. Why not submit some work?
- I had two poems published up on Spork Press last fall.
- I’ll have a poem coming out with Salt Hill in a couple months.
Anyway, that’s about it for now. But stay tuned for some more semi-frequent updates.
The very friendly folks at the Heavy Feather Review have recently released Issue 2.1 of their journal, which features several pages from The Diegesis, among many other wonderful poets. I highly recommend checking it out and supporting a great new journal.
To further compound the honor, Heavy Feather also posted their review of The Diegesis. I’m not used to seeing people talk about the things I do, so it was a fun experience. I’ve been warned about not reading too many of your own reviews though, so we’ll see how I react when we get our first negative one.
My favorite part of the review? When a poem of mine that I almost cut from the collection gets singled out as a strong point. There is a certain beauty to multiple perspectives. I’m glad someone else liked that one, despite my own reservations.
Pre-order The Diegesis a collaborative poetry documentary with myself and Joshua Young, at SPD Books, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble
