Happy Birthday To PLAYING ONE ON TV

Today marks the official release of my new chapbook, PLAYING ONE ON TV!




I had a lot of fun writing these poems, during a NaPoWriMo 30/30, several years ago. Stuck with no inspiration, I decided to write poems to/about various female TV characters I'd grown up watching. When I pulled them back out in 2016, I saw so many similar themes running through them - girlhood, feminism, the whiteness of pop culture, womanhood - that turning them into a book seemed like a natural next step.

Whether you're a fan of Doug, Saved By the Bell, Dawson's Creek, Friends, or non-nineties shows like Gilmore Girls and Archer, I think there's something for everyone packed into this book. I extend endless gratitude to Margaret Bashaar and Sarah Reck for turning my work into such a rad-looking book. Hyacinth Girl Press has been taking all my money for years now, and I'm so proud to now have a book in their catalog.
