flywheels dividing in your mouth

Stirring just reprinted my poem “The Butterfly Factory.”

His face white as the centre of a burn

New poem “Bluebeard” just posted at Chizine!

I say, “Yes,/Grampie, that’s me. I’m Sharon’s daughter./I’m your granddaughter. You know me.”

Stirring has just put out their April issue, which contains my “Rex Sestina.”


This year I’m not doing it. I’ll still be posting a daily poem and prompt like I’ve done in years past, but I’m too busy getting Upper Rubber Boot Books off the ground to write a poem every day. URB will be publishing ebooks of poetry, short story collections, and novels, both new and out-of-print. […]

Rolled cuffs—

Four and Twenty just posted their March 2011 issue (that links to their link to it, but here’s a direct link to the pdf). My poem “Summer in Tennessee” is on the penultimate page before the bios. For those of you interested in genesis, it’s a failed haiku. I couldn’t compress it enough to make […]

“Facial Deficits”

My news! Let me tell you it! PANK just accepted my facial allotransplantation short story. THAT’S RIGHT I’M AWESOME.

I have a lot of things to say…

…mainly about epidemiology and Bobby Rogers (who I saw read on Thursday; short version = he’s great) and more on gender parity, but it all has to wait because I’m in the middle of an epic submission spree (yes, because of the gender parity discussion), but I had to let you all know: Trapeze just […]

Gender parity at Seven by Twenty

Further to my last post and the lack of data to determine what’s going on there, I wondered how Seven by Twenty fares in terms of gender parity. I don’t believe I’m particularly biased (although of course I’m a product of my culture and some biases are inherent there) and I don’t think I pay […]
