A million updates, as usual. I survived my first academic year as Professor Cure. I am profoundly exhausted but y'all, it was so worth it. I am so proud of my students. The newest online issue of Script dropped and it is gorgeous. Click the cover art below to check it out!
I am taking summer off and I am beyond excited. I have plans to work on my manuscript and read all the poems. It's going to be amazing.
In other news, we did put out that Winter 2018 podcast episode. I am sad to say it will be my last. I am still an editor for VMP, I'm just not working on the podcast anymore. It was super fun but I had to be real with myself about what I can reasonably take on. That's a tough balance as an artist. Sure y'all can relate.
We put out our Spring 2018 issue and it's fire! Very proud of it.
Remember how I said I was going to read for Spiderweb Salon? I did. It was truly one of the most bizarre experiences of my life and I am so glad they included me.
Inner Moonlight with Lauren Brazeal and Stevie Edwards was absolutely everything I hoped for and more. They were both incredible readers and I am so damn happy I got to feature them and promote their work. I reviewed Lauren's brand new book Gutter and let me tell you, it is stunning. Wild Detectives contributor Katy Dycus reviewed Stevie's latest book, Sadness Workshop, and it is equally beautiful. I picked up both books during the reading. Get on down to Wild Detectives so you can get them for yourself!
I also featured for a new series called Meet Me With Curiosity on May 5. It's an outdoor showcase at Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. It was an honor to be invited.
Also, the long-awaited Southern Poetry Anthology: Texas from Texas Review Press is finally out! My poem "Supernova" is in it. Get yourself a copy!
Upcoming: the next Inner Moonlight is June 6 at 7:30PM. We've got Courtney Marie and Fatima Hirsi presenting their joint chapbook. I can't freakin' wait.
I should also have a second edition of Letters to Petrarch out soon! More on that later.
Y'all be good out there!
