Damn, y’all, I am behind! So much going on. Let’s get started!
Inner Moonlight has been such a blast! In April, I’ll have an anniversary show featuring as many of the past poets as possible. These amazing folks have all come through since the last post: Sebastian Paramo and Caitlin Pryor, Paul Koniecki and Nadia Wolnisty (check out this article about them from D Magazine), Megan Peak (check out this review of her book), Trista Edwards and Bess Whitby, Darius Frasure and Bear Rodehaver, and Aaron Glover and Emmy Piercy. Up next on March 13, we’ve got Alejandra Ramos Gomez and Reverie Koniecki. The anniversary show on April 10 is gonna be a poetry party, so if you’ve missed any shows, that’s the night to come out and behold what a fantastic year we’ve had!
Script had some great things happen. Our Awards Night for the 2018 issue had a great turnout and the Collegian kindly covered it and posted some photos. I also got word that the Community College Humanities Association selected our 2017 issue as first place for best magazine in the southwest region! We are so proud. My ENGL 2389 students and I are hard at work on the 2019 issue. I can’t wait to share it with y’all!
I taught a workshop about the magic of the sonnet at the Marine Creek Creative Writing Conference at TCC Northwest. This free event is always excellent!
Thanks to Sebastian Paramo and Mag Gabbert for featuring me at their Pegasus Reading Series back in December. I had a blast and it was an honor to read with such excellent folks!
I’ve also got another round of my ekphrasis workshop coming up for the Writer’s Garret. It’ll be April 27, so go on and sign up! It’s super fun.
Voicemail Poems is back after a hiatus. We take rolling submissions so call us up! Stoked to put out a new issue so stay tuned.
I’m sending out that manuscript, so seriously, y’all, all the good vibes.
Take care of yourselves out there. I’ll be back eventually with more good news.
