This is nearly a month late, but I’ve been struggling with a photo I bought of Harold’s hearse (from the movie Harold and Maude) and finally finished it today. Was pleased to get accepted into Moist Poetry Journal, a queerish journal and feminist space started by Han Vanderhart. This particular sequence of poems was guest edited by Jennifer Funk. Check out my poem or ALL of the wonderful poems on the Moist Poetry site. Moist Poetry publishes a single (or sometimes double) poem three times a week.
Very happy to have this experimental writing, Because You Are Gone: I Dream You Laughing in Schuylkill Valley Journal Dispatches. When Schuylkill editor Rob Kaniuk wrote me and said it was “kick ass,” it confirmed my suspicion it was finished and gives me the confidence to stay strange (and experimental). Schuylkill’s Dispatches is an online feature where they publish genre-defying writing. They also have online issues, plus they publish a bi-annual print journal. They’ve been publishing for about 30 years.
I wrote this piece in a really great Bending Genre’s workshop with one of my favorite fiction writers, Meg Tuite. I highly recommend their workshops. They usually span two to three days and you post your work (and share feedback) in their proprietary system (it’s not Zoom, so we don’t have to worry about someone stealing our details).
Akashic bits is, I believe, a catchall genre for stories–the dreams, the past, the future, the everywhen–all floating out there in the ether.
Thrilled to have poetry in Gone Lawn #42. Thank you @OwenKaelan and @amygcb! There are lots of great writers in this issue. This is my third poem about holidays published in 2021, and how fortunate this one comes out on Halloween and as those other holidays come creeping. This piece, “Again, Holidays” is a zuihitsu poem painted with a broad brush. Read more about zuihitsu writing on this site.
Very honored to have this poem, which has had a hard life, in Prelude Magazine. It’s called “Slippery Gods, Not Things” and, well, you just need to click and read it. More art coming soon. Promise. And maybe I’ll even get some up to sell in the near future.
Happy to have a second poem published in Rat’s Ass Review on 10-27-2021. This issue is full of great writers and has a lovely cover (I’ll update this when I’m not so tired). Read it here, and, of course, here’s an album cover, although I fear I soon won’t have time to make these, half-assed as they might be. Also, check out this other post that includes Cherry Tomatoes in Singing Bowl (the other poem published by Rat’s Ass Review) or just read the poem on their site. Lots of good things happening in October. Peace.
