Hope to see you at the journal’s launch party this Friday, April 29th at 7pm. There will be readings by Jeremy Michael Clark, Andrew Mangan, and Kamilah Aisha Moon, contributors to the NYU Creative Writing Program’s nationally distributed literary journal. There will also be octopus temporary tattoos, drawn by me! Enjoy.

The Grief Diaries

Image 2016-02-01 at 1.25.45 PMToday 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!
