I'm starting 2018 with some fun news about my upcoming feminist, pop culture chapbook, PLAYING ONE ON TV. It now has a cover, designed by the very talented Sarah Reck!
I'll likely have updates in the next several weeks about the release date and how to purchase the book. :)

I was recently asked to join the staff of Storyscape Journal as a prose editor, and their new issue that I helped choose work for is now live here! Check it out, especially James Gyure's story, "The Skunk," which I fell in love with for its layers. I love all the work I've gotten to read for Storyscape, so far, and I can't wait to work on future issues.

I wrote a lighthearted little piece about how I was convinced I'd always deliver a baby before forty weeks and the resulting anger when I was proven wrong, and Pregnant Chicken loved it enough to publish it. You can read it here. It's hard for women to justify any emotions other than joy during pregnancy, but the spectrum of feelings during that time is so large, and it's perhaps a little eye-opening to record those moments at very specific points. This essay was written a day or two before my due date, and really, how can one's emotions not be all over the place then....but my anger wasn't well received by all.

I'm so happy to have two lipstick poems (I know it feels like I have a zillion of these, I promise you I don't) in the new issue of Jet Fuel Review, which is packed with so much other great work, I'm honored to have a spot there. Definitely check out the whole issue, along with my pieces here.

Happy to share that another one of the lipstick poems, "Play Date Black," is in the new fabulous issue of decomP, and you can read it here. It's one of my favorites, as it features scared babies and black lipstick, so there you go.

I wrote a short review of Joanna Valente's e-book, XENOS, and interviewed her about how the book came together. You can read it over at Entropy, and you can read XENOS for free as part of the Agape Editions Morning House Series.
