Puppy Monkey Poem

This is me stopping in to report that I've been busy and THINGS ARE AFOOT.

- If all goes according to plan, my new chapbook, The Birth Creatures, will drop NEXT WEEK from Agape Editions (that's right, I said "drop," like I'm a god damn rock star and not, er, the opposite of that). It's a kooky little book I wrote last year, and I couldn't be happier that Fox Foley picked it up for her new Sundress Publications imprint. This is my first foray into e-chap publishing, and I'm super excited to reach a wider audience through this medium. Look for the link, soon, y'all.

- The awesome folks at Stirring published my poem, "Color Wheel," in their February issue that you can read here. It's the second published poem from my 90s batch that I wrote last year. The first was "Juliet," which you can check out in Really System here. The overarching theme in this batch is, as always: I still want to be Claire Danes when I grow up.

- Gigantic Sequins is officially OPEN for submissions until March 15, and I'm helping read poetry and CNF. In addition to those categories, they're also looking at fiction and art/comics, so go here to send them stuff. GS is also taking pre-orders for Issue 7.1, which I helped read for, link to purchase here.

- We're hard at work at ELJ Publications reading manuscripts for our 2017 catalogue. Check out our submission guidelines here. Our sub fees are all under $10, and we typically respond quickly. Our 2016 lineup is pretty sick, so you know you want to join our family. Send your stuff by April 1.

- Jordan Catalano, I'm coming for you.

Short Story in Meridian

Once upon a time, I had a dream I opened a chapbook store with Jeff Goldblum. I wrote a poem about it (obviously), which turned into a short story, which Meridian chose to publish in their latest issue. They have a free epub version available on their site, in addition to physical copies for sale.


This is my favorite story I've written, and I couldn't be more thrilled that such a great journal loved it as much as I do.

Poems In Public Pool And Forthcoming Story

I recently had a couple of pop culture poems go up at Public Pool that you can read here. The first one, "Angela Chase Weather Report," is from my chapbook, PLAYING ONE ON TV, about iconic female television characters.

I'm also super excited to have a flash story called "Copy Machine" forthcoming in the next issue of The Conium Review alongside some fabulous writers, including one of my favorites, Shane Jones. Check out the full contributor list here.
