I’m in very good company here with writers like Georgia Bellas, Berit Ellingsen, and Deirdre Coyle included.
  • I have a guest blog post that’s gonna be going up on Alternating Current’s blog, The Spark for Poet’s day. It was a lot of fun to write. It’s a bit of a ways away, but I look forward to seeing it go live and I hope everyone enjoys it.
  • Three of my poems, “roots”, “lab notes: page 1”, and “evolution” will be published in Noble Gas Qtrly. I’m very excited because they always publish amazing work and writers, so I’m going to be in such good company there.

  • A poem of mine, “insomnolence”, was published in issue seven of (parenthetical), a Toronto-based zine. You can read the piece here as it appears in print, or here on the words on pages blog. My contributor’s copy arrived in the mail shortly after the issue launch party with a kind note from the editors. Proud to be included in such a lovely publication.

June

  • “Dawn”, my Majora’s Mask inspired poem was accepted by Cool Skull Press for Goddessmode, their anthology of video game inspired writing by women and non-binary writers. It’s a cool project, their profits will go towards supporting Feminist Frequency and Girls Who Code.
  • I was asked to write a guest blog post for Poet’s Day in August, so I’m also currently working on this. Luckily it involves reading poetry so it’s not really like work at all, and I get to recommend the hell out of talented folks and their books, which is just the best.
  • Some of my writing was read on Mr. Bear’s Violet Hour Saloon, an hour long radio show with music, fiction, poetry and more on bostonfreeradio.com, at Tuesdays from 8pm-9pm and hosted by the talented Georgia Bellas and her stuffed bear, aptly named Mr. Bear.
    Episode #62 is themed on missing someone, absence and longing. There’s a lot of talented writers packed into this show, and I’m very excited to be in such good company, or to even be included at all. My poem “insomnolence”, published in (parenthetical) and a flash fiction called Scorch from issue 2 of Wyvern Lit are read near the beginning, just before the 8 minute mark.  You can listen to it right here: http://secretlives.podbean.com/e/missing-on-the-mind/
