I just found out that I’ll have the honor of attending a two week writing residency at the Vermont Studio Center in September! I’ve wanted to go ever since Major Jackson told my craft class at NYU that we should all apply there after graduation. Anyone have tips on what to see and do in VT, or what to expect about the residency itself? I’m hoping to finish the manuscript here and, if I can, find time to work on some photography/embroidery projects.
I’ve heard such great things about VSC, and this will be my first writing residency. I look forward to meeting the other residents!
This picture was taken in Lima, Peru. The flowers, colors, and angles caught my eye one gray day as my partner and I explored Miraflores. I think dogs are more wonderful than humans; I’ve heard it said that owning a dog is a happiness you never knew you could have. It is an honor to see this photograph on the cover of Cimarron Review, and I send my warmest thanks to the editors.
I am very excited to announce the launch of my embroidery shop, One Gold Canary. Here are a few pictures of pieces I’ve made so far. I’m currently accepting commissions, so feel free to get in touch if you’d like something custom-made.
Enjoy! And happy holidays.
I had the honor of being the featured artist in Issue 15 of Rogue Agent! Many thanks to Jill Khoury and Jen Stein for making this happen.
This month my artwork is featured in BOXCAR Poetry Review issue #37! Two photographs from my ongoing project “Light Experiments” are featured on the cover and among wonderful poems.
Boxcar asked me to recommend three must-read poets, and I named Jim Daniels, Deborah Landau, and Jericho Brown. Special thanks to Neil Aitken. Check out the issue here:
March has been a month of great news, and I’m looking forward to having photographs appear in the April edition of Heartbeat Literary Journal. I’ll post a link as soon as the issue is live. Thank you so much, Heartbeat!
On St. Patrick’s Day of all days, I have a black and white photo series forthcoming in the publication Stanzas, a chapbook based in Limerick, Ireland. There will be a launch party on March 25th in Hook and Ladder Cafe in Limerick City. More than anything I wish I could travel back to Ireland, and it means a lot to me to be part of Stanzas, even from afar. Special thanks to Shane Vaughan for setting up this collaboration.
Today I have a new poem in the latest issue of The Grief Diaries. Click here to read the poem and here to check out artwork and writing by Ira Huff, Jonathan May, John Sibley Williams, Katia Noyes, Tanya Couch, and Maia Evrona.
The Grief Diaries has an all-female editorial board that aims to publish work by and for communities who are often underrepresented in the arts—women, artists of color, members of the LGBTQ community, disabled persons, etc. So, I am especially proud to be part of this publication. Thanks again to Carlie Hoffman and the editors!
Check it out: new poem up on Cellpoems, a poetry journal distributed via text message! Very cool to see this poem alongside work by the poems of Kimiko Hahn, Aimee Nezhukumatahil, Matthea Harvey, Sherman Alexie, Nomi Stone, and so many other poets I admire. Thank you Cellpoems! Everyone should submit.
Many thanks to Jason Koo for adding this audio recording of my poem “Remembering What the Body Is” to the Brooklyn Poets Soundcloud Archive. This poem was featured when I was the Brooklyn Poet of the Week in April 2014. Check out the article here.
