Poems in Quail Bell Magazine

The super-cool Quail Bell Magazine has been publishing some poems from my upcoming pop culture, feminist chapbook, PLAYING ONE ON TV, so I'll be sharing them here in the coming weeks.

Today, feast your eyes and brains on two (TWO) poems about Lisa Turtle, called "Lisa Turtle's Fashion Show" and "Lisa Turtle Comes Out of Her Shell." I've always felt Lisa got the short stick on Saved By the Bell - she rarely had any lead story lines and certainly no big romance arcs. This is problematic, considering she's the only woman of color on the show, which is something I obviously didn't think too much about when watching it as a kid. Now, however, it's become something I can't stop thinking and writing about. Damn feminist enlightenment.

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.

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.
