173: still here, jes quiet________19 April, 2017

i know it’s been a long time since i’ve said boo. sorry about that. mostly thesis woes. some if it is surely the adjustment-headspace of the historical moment. and some of it too, is probably that writing school can make one feel awfully like one should shut up more. (psst one is me.) but i’m listening to crooked still and doing design stuff right now, back where i started but somewhere else too, and the sound of aoife o’donovan and mandolin in my ears feels good and warm and my teeth fit right in my mouth and my hands move on the keys and my eyes see the grids and the shapes and now how bad can all that really be, you know, for a little while?

like this.

lots of fotos to upload, when i get the time. will have news soon about other publications as well. warm feelings–

172: DIAGRAM __ erasure special issue________21 November, 2016

well hello post-apocalyptic dystopian wasteland futuremadmaxamericuhhhhh! “they kilt us but they ain’t whupped us” etc? more faulkner? sometimes one is not enough. in fact, i would go so far as to say that in our great country, one is rarely enough. the more the better. i try not to get political on here, but in the words of that guy’s post-election sign in new york: “i’m not usually a sign guy, but jeez.” for now let’s all go back to our huts and call our congressman a few times.

there is some good news. i have two stories up in the latest extra-special edition of DIAGRAM, entitled “erasure”. DIAGRAM has long been one of my favorite lit mags. there aren’t enough publications that support experimental literature in this world. ninth letter, DIAGRAM, fence … i’m probably leaving out a few idols, but you know what i mean. and i must admit that DIAGRAM was on my radar before even the mighty conjunctions. so read the rest of the mag if you have time — pure gold through and through.


171: tin house, “the drop”________13 October, 2016

although the world is looking scary as ever, it’s been sunny in my corner of it recently. i am honored and ecstatic to have my new comic “the drop” featured on tin house open bar. in addition to being excellent karaoke singers, tin house is consistently to be found publishing some of the finest fiction in the world. if you aren’t reading their magazine, attending their conference, and/or checking their blog, yer missin out! read, share, and be merry.
