I'm trying to decide what I want to do with my hair for the summer. Right now, it's really long, and the ends are unintentionally lighter. I was trying to get a clear photo of the length and the ends. Wasn't attempting to look angsty with my head tilted. No filter. I am that pale right now.
I have a poem in the new issue of Sprung Formal: The Kansas City Art Institute's Literary Journal. Issue XIII is really fun, and even has a poem by Mark Leidner. I've been a fan of Leidner's work since undergrad. I remember being really pumped up about the poem "Charismatic Ambulance Driver." I wish I could have bottled that baby poet excitement so I could douse myself with it now.
The issue is in print and online. You can read it online here. Here's a sneak peak of the print version.
There is a release event tonight in Kansas City.
The Sprung Formal editors are also charismatic ambulance drivers.
In other news, a poem of mine is being translated for the journal Gard. It will be the third time my poetry has been translated into/published in Turkish.
I've also had a few pieces of writing published this year that I haven't shared on this blog because the overall project is its own thing. Just thought I'd mention it because I haven't posted on this blog in a few months.
