Current Things (July 29th, 2019)

Well July has been an exciting month! My debut full length poetry collection, Your Strange Fortune, was released from Vegetarian Alcoholic Press! It is available for order from the press, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your favorite independent bookstore. A lovely review of the book was out at Cleaver magazine written by the amazing KC Mead-Brewer! Another lovely review was at the awesome Juliette Sebock’s book blog!

Little Fiction allowed me to write a playlist in celebration of my book

and EcoTheo allowed me to write a short essay on the creation of the book

And I was also fortunate to have a new poem out at a fabulous place:

Litany in Last Exit

Upcoming things include a story (and a podcast interview) out soon with Modern Language Studies and if you’re interested in taking an online workshop for me—stay tuned to the workshops page and my Twitter, as I will be putting up details on my next fiction one at the end of this week!
