Oops! How did I forget to mention this?

This morning, I was doing some updates, and I realized that I forgot to mention something that was published back in April.

Earlier this year, the poet Ryu Ando invited me to contribute to the Operating System’s 8th Annual NAPOMO 30/30/30 Series. I chose to write about the nineteenth-century poet Edwin Arlington Robinson and how his poetry influenced me as a writer.

It was a huge honor to be a part of this, so why I forgot to mention it on this blog is a mystery.

Anyway, if you haven’t read it yet, you can check it out here.

Two New Pieces Published Today

I’m excited to announce that I have two new pieces published today.
 
The first is my flash Grandma, which is in the first issue of
Tiny Molecules. Thanks to editor Kelsey Ipsen.
The second, Heaven/waves crashing, is a two-parter: a flash and an erasure poem. You can find that in the latest issue of Moonchild Magazine. Thanks to editor Nadia Gerassimenko.

New Fiction: It’s Me, Your Imaginary Friend

My story “It’s Me, Your Imaginary Friend” is now in the new issue of Perspectives Magazine.

Perspectives is a literary magazine that publishes stories and poems told from the point-of-view of animals and inanimate objects. My story (as you can probably guess from the title) is about an imaginary friend.

Check out the story here, and consider submitting to this great publication.

“Golden” and “The Price Tower” available again

Sometimes, publications close up shop, and works that they published are no longer available. This happened with several of my poems, including two of my favorites, “Golden” and “The Price Tower.” They were published two years ago in WOLVES, a great e-journal that went defunct sometime ago. Sadly, none of the issues they published are available online anymore.

Fortunately, RL Black, former editor-in-chief of Unbroken Journal and Unlost Journal, recently started a new venture, Defuncted, and has reprinted the two poems.

New Fiction: The Anderson Bridge

You really never know when inspiration is going to strike.

Last summer, I was standing in the line at Starbuck’s. I was wearing a pair of shorts and my William Faulker Light in August t-shirt from the Out of Print clothing company.

A man in front of me glanced at my shirt and smirked. “William Faulkner, eh?” After giving his opinion about Faulkner’s works, he shared an anecdote that his college professor had once told him about Faulkner visiting Harvard Square in the 1960s. According to the professor, people looked on in surprise as the author was walking to a bait-and-tackle store that no longer exists.

To be honest, the anecdote wasn’t that interesting. However, it gave me the idea for a stream-of-consciousness piece, “The Anderson Bridge,” which was just published issue 9 of formercactus, along with other great works.

You can check out the piece here. And please consider submitting to them—it’s a really great journal.
