Current Things (December 1st, 2017)

Here is a round up of things that went on during the past few weeks. There is also only a week left to pre-order my book! You can find it here!

I did a guest blog about the book for the wonderful Catherine Lundoff, which you can read here.

I’m December Poet of the Month at Yes, Poetry and it’s such an unbelievable honor! You can read my piece here.

I had a poem over at (b)OINKZINE.

I have a short story at Ellipsis Zine, titled “Everyone’s at Our Place, Even Though We’re Gone” which was a favorite title of mine.

I have a piece that has a golem in it, over at Bad Pony Magazine.

I also have a piece at Wyvern Lit, which was the winner of their Flash Fiction Contest(!).

My story from last month, “Other Names,” was a Longform Fiction Pick, is on the Nebula Reading List for 2017, and was reviewed by the amazing AC Wise here.

AND, I am so delighted to announce that I have started a literary journal with two amazing writers, Teo Mungaray and Hannah Cohen. Our little baby Cotton Xenomorph is now open for submissions!

Current Things (November 1st, 2017)

This is the post excerpt.

20171031_181649

Over the past couple of months, a lot has been going on. I released the book trailer for my upcoming chapbook! As a teacher of multimodal composition and communication, I thought it only fair if I did a trailer for the book. I also just love trailers so much (me: the person who watches movies for the trailers).

My chapbook is also now available for pre-order! The poems in it are all centered around themes of loss, violence and women’s bodies, and how we cope with loss.

I also started a new series over at my beloved Nerds of a Feather! It will be an ongoing examination of the horror genre, titled Horror 101.

At Ploughshares, I wrote about writing horror effectively, a short story by favorite writer Percival Everett, and about using tropes in fiction.

I just had one of my favorite short stories I’ve written published in the lovely Cosmonauts Avenue. The story, titled “Other Names,” was originally written as part of an abandoned novel and reformed into a story. These are characters I love (it’s also one of my few stories that I have “dream-cast” in my head). It also deals with a health issue I know first hand.

There were also some other publications: a story I originally published at Flash Fiction Online is now available as an Audible podcast! Plus I had poems at Boston Accent Lit and at Occulum!

Stay tuned for some upcoming pieces at Ellipsis Zine, Public Pool Poetry, (b)oinkzine, Third Point Press, Half Mystic Press, and Bad Pony Magazine!
