the queer south

Rarely do I get exciting things in the mail, so I was pumped to receive The Queer South from Sibling Rivalry Press.

This amazing anthology is edited by Douglas Ray and houses two of my own poems ("Monument Avenue" and "Azalea Pink").

The collection also features work by Dorothy Allison, Shane Allison, John Andrews, Derrick Austin, Richard Blanco, Perry Brass, Dustin Brookshire, Jericho Brown, Joey Connelly, William Cordeiro, Cleo Creech, James Croteau, J.K. Daniels, Nick Dephtereos, David Eye, Jason K. Friedman, D. Gilson, Ellen Goldstein, Mirian Brid Greenberg, Elizabeth Gross, Johnathan Harper, Scott Hightower, Matthew Hittinger, Darrel Alejandro Holnes, Rex Leonowicz, Sassafras Lowrey, Tyler Lynn, Bo McGuire, Rangi McNeil, Kelly McQuain, M. Mack, Ed Madden, Jeff Mann, Randall Mann, Mary Meriam, Stephen S. Mills, Cameron Mitchell, Foster Noone, Joseph Osmundson, Eddie Outlaw, Seth Pennington, Evan J. Peterson, Kenneth Pobo, Brad Richard, Hannah Riddle, Laurence Ross, Liana Roux, Kevin Sessums, Del Shores, Erin Elizabeth Smith, Will Stockton, Dan Stone, Christine Stroud, Billie Tadros, TC Tolbert, Dan Vera, Annie Virginia, Valerie Wetlaufer, C.T.

rosie assoulin spring 2015 rtw collection

I love the flowiness, coolness of this collection (and the big hats!).

landfill, 1989

I'm blissed to have a poem, "Landfill, 1989" in the new glitterMOB.  I wrote it quite feverishly and submitted it on a whim.

Electric layout and so much cool writing in the issue.
