Yep, you read that right. It’s release day for my latest chapbook, PRAY, PRAY, PRAY: Poems I wrote to Prince in the middle of the night!
I’m super pumped to have this book out in the world. When I started deliriously writing poems to Prince last summer, I thought maybe one or two would get picked up by a magazine. And I certainly didn’t anticipate writing a chapbook’s worth of work. But here it is, thanks to Porkbelly Press and my lovely editor (who is also the publisher and designer) Nicci Mechler.
And, because I can’t help but explode with wow, I found out a few weeks ago that one of the poems in the book, “Hiding is the only thing that matters this summer,” was nominated by Hermeneutic Chaos for the Pushcart Prize. Thank you so much to editor Shinjini Bhattacharjee! I couldn’t be more pleased.
