It’s been quiet in these parts, I know, I know. I’ve been up to my elbows in freelance work and poems. And I’ve mostly been functioning on coffee and guacamole. But somehow, in the chaos of the past few months, I managed to write a few poems to send to Porkbelly Press’ EMILY anthology. Destroying the Western Cannon as usual, I went through some of Emily Dickinson’s letters and erasured them into new poems. Lo and behold, Team Porkbelly dug my work, and I’m appearing in this anthology that celebrates her life and her achievements. Ms. Emily D. might not have seen erasure before, but I’d like to think she’d approve of this work. And of the many wonderful works that appear in EMILY.
In case a couple of poems from yours truly aren’t enough for your hard-earned $8.50, there’s also work by the following wonderful writers and artists in this LIMITED EDITION (like only 125 ever) anthology:
Natasha Arora, Sarah Feldman, Laura Garrison, Karen George, Sonja Johanson, Sarah Nichols, Jeremy Pataky, Nicole Tong, Robin Turner, Loretta Diane Walker, Hilda Weaver, & Laura Madeline Wiseman.~ read more ~
