Been busy, lately, y'all! I participated in two readings for the Dallas Poets Community Cattlemen & Cadillacs anthology, one at the big Half Price Books in Dallas and one at the Benbrook Public Library. Both were a blast! DFW is home to so many amazing writers and I'm honored to be included in the anthology.
I also participated in the LGBT reading for Pandora's Box Poetry Showcase. Thanks to Christopher Soden for including me! We did this super cool radio show with KNON 89.3 to promote the reading. You should listen!
In other news, I reinstated the podcast for Voicemail Poems! I made an episode highlighting three outstanding poems from the summer 2016 issue. The fall issue will roll out during October and I'll follow up with the next episode. I hosted a literary radio show back in college and I'm stoked to get back to making this sort of thing. Take a listen! I get real nerdy about how much I love the poems.
Script threw its awards night last Friday! The editors and contributors brought their families, we had dinner, and celebrated everyone's accomplishments. Special guests included former faculty editors and a former student contributor who spoke about their experiences and shared their work. So thrilled and proud to serve as faculty editor for Script. My students are relentlessly inspiring. Check out this awesome photo, compliments of the school newspaper, The Collegian. Yes, I'm wearing the cover art as a cape. Read the full article here.
More good news to come. Y'all be good out there!
