Hello friends!

Big news! Corgi Snorkel Press will be publishing my chapbook in June 2014! I’m thrilled, honored, and excited. Theresa and Sal did some really amazing work over the summer, and I’m dying to see how they’ll package my precious words.

Some updates!

Hello, world!

Some new poems at Hot Metal Bridge and Emerge Literary Journal.

As always, my interviews (and many others) can be found at the Collagist Blog.

I’m currently getting my MFA at George Mason University and am forever grateful.

All my affections,

Here’s what I’ve read:
Kate Greenstreet: The Last Four Things
K.A. Hayes: Dear Apolocolypse
Sabrina Orah Mark: Tsim Tsum
Dorthea Lasky: Poetry is Not a Project

Tsim Tsum was certainly my favorite. I met Sabrina at AWP, forgot about it, and then Karla sent me her book, and I remembered again. I like he because she has a weird obsession with babies too! Also her poems are beautiful.

I’ve read parts of Dear Apocolypse before (and met K.A. [she was very cute/pregnant]), but it just doesn’t do for me what I like. I like the poems, but sometimes I feel like she’s just talking to me. Which is fine, but not what I want.

Poetry is Not a Project reminded me of Alison Feldish.

Greenstreet’s book was beautiful, but I really don’t think I understood a word in it.

House sitting–poetry–little dog and cat.

So, yesterday was the first day of AWP Denver 2010. Awesome things that have happened:

1) While volunteering at the pre-registration booth giving out badges, I met Malachi Black, author of “Drifting at Midday,” this poem: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/archive/poem.html?id=237480
This poem was VERY important to me last semester, so when Nadia handed me his ID to look up his badge I had to pause and say, “Are you, ‘Now I can see: even the trees / are tired’?”
His jaw dropped and he said something like, “Oh my god, you know that.”
We continued having this sort of double awestruck conversation, him saying that if I recited any more of his poem he would cry and me saying about how much it meant to me and shaking hands, mouths hanging open. It was amazing. Absolutely amazing. More over, dude’s only six years older than I am. What the fuck?

2) Went to a panel with Marya Hornbacher on it, author of Madness and Wasted. I had just read the former over winter break. She was fantastically funny. Nadia was just as starstruck as I was with darling Malachi.

3) Saw Katie Pierce and Joe Scap while resting before going back to Nadia’s (Oh. yeah. I’m on crutches because I fucked up my knee. You know, the reg.)

4) Went home, slept, went to Katie Pierce’s reading, which was wonderful!!!!

Anyway, today is the FUSE panel and many other lovely things and I need to get dressed!
