It’s been a super-fun month so far. First, AWP was a blast. I got to see a bunch of great friends and share a table with Adam Robinson, Mike Young, Bryan Coffelt, and Gabe Durham. I did a panel, a few readings, and even got to meet one of my next Future Tense authors for the first time: The fantastic May-Lan Tan, who came all the way over from the UK.
I also got to see another upcoming Future Tense writer, Chelsea Hodson!
After AWP weekend, I got to indulge in my collage-mania some more. I interviewed Seattle collage artist Jesse Treece for Nailed Magazine.
And then I got to meet the fantastic Cory Peeke at his Gallery 6 show in Portland. I also bought my first copy (of many) of Kolaj Magazine.
I also had a couple of collages published on The NewerYork website, which is super cool. I have more collage work appearing elsewhere soonish but I have to be hush hush about it.
I was part of this cool story on Flavorwire about how to deal with bad reviews.
I was part of this cool book club for the Johns Hopkins University literary journal, Doctor T.J. Eckleburg Review.
I’ve been doing a lot of work on the next three Future Tense releases: Scout Book chapbooks from the aforementioned May-Lan and Chelsea, as well as Jay Ponteri, who just won an Oregon Book Award for his last book, Wedlocked. These three books are so good. I can’t wait to show you.
I was also on a cool podcast talking about This Is Between Us, but it’s not up yet, so until next time… Happy first day of Spring!
