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.
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.
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.
I will be reading with three emerging writers and poet Dana Ward this FRIDAY, APRIL 16 at 7 PM at KGB Bar, located at 85 E 4th St, New York. If you’re up for spending an evening with whiskey-fueled MFA students, please stop by and/or buy me a shot because it is the right thing to do.
