So I’ve been terrible about keeping up with the blogging and I could tell you all about my health and that stuff but that would be boring so I’m just going to get to the news.
First things first, I have a new chapbook out. FIRE IN THE SKY is a chapbook of three long poems built from scrambled and then erasured Lana Del Rey Lyrics. Each of the poem uses language from one of her first three albums. It’s pretty fun to read from (I’ll be reading from it at Malvern Books on July 22!) and hopefully y’all enjoy it as well. This one is very swear-y and sex-y, so it won’t be best for most younger readers. But, you know, everyone is different.
I really enjoyed working with editor Scott Sweeney on this book. Would recommend. A++++. (Hi, Scott.)
If you want a copy, check out my publisher Grey Book Press, or order directly from me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. I have adorable fireworks buttons and some found poetry kits to go along with orders. Books are $6 + shipping, either from me or from Grey Book. 🙂
I also have some new-er news! As of July 4th, I have a new chapbook (my 8th!) forthcoming from one of my favorite publishers, Hermeneutic Chaos Press! I’m so thrilled to get to work with editor Shijini Bhattacharjee! The book is called WE’RE DOING WITCHCRAFT, and it collects some of my more feminist pieces, including political response pieces, found poems, and poems about growing up in a female body. (Oh, adolescence!)~ read more ~
