Brooklyn Poets Audio Recording

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.

Today I handed in my Master’s Thesis, Little Vices. My time at the NYU MFA has come to a close. I’d like to extend infinite thanks to my family, my friends, my teachers and students, and to Deborah Landau, the best advisor anyone could ask for. And to Bryn Dodson, wherever you are.

Poem in riverSedge Literary Journal

I’m pleased to announce that I have a poem in riverSedge Literary Journal alongside my fellow MFA colleague Henry Mills.  I look forward to reading the whole issue when my contributor copy arrives in the mail.

“On behalf of riverSedge, thank you all for your prose, poetry and art. We’ve worked hard to put together a second consecutive scintillating issue, and each of your contributions have helped us exceed that goal…we are excited to continue to re-envision the journal’s 38-year old tradition of publishing only the very best literature and art from South Texas and beyond.”

I’ll be sure to post a picture as soon as possible.  Thanks again, riverSedge.

Hey all, super excited to have poems in Yew Journal alongside beautiful paintings by my dear friend / former Carnegie Mellon University classmate / New York roommate Jiyoo Jye. This year I want to make more visual artist/writer collaborations happen – many thanks to Yew Journal for giving us a space to do this. Thanks also to Catherine Barnett’s writing workshop for inspiring and editing these poems.
