Some Good News

I found out today that my second full length manuscript Butter Sad (my new/thesis manuscript) made it to the next round in the Quercus Review Press book contest. I'm so excited that this very new manuscript got some recognition. 

To celebrate I watched one of my favorite movies for, like, the millionth time. 

My book, Inappropriate Sleepover, being published by The National Poetry Review Press, is scheduled to be out this spring.

Poetry Videos

I just uploaded two poetry videos which you can watch here.

One of the videos has two poems that are in my book coming out this spring. The other video has two poems I wrote in 2013 that are in the manuscript I'm working on now.

P.S. I have readings coming up in several different states this spring and summer. More info soon.

Lit Mag Party

I got back to Akron, Ohio (oh, Akron) late in the day on Saturday. I had a wonderful holiday break in central Iowa. It went way too fast.

When I got back to Akron, I had copies of literary magazines that had recently published poems of mine waiting for me.

I have two poems in the latest issue of Sugar House Review. You can order copies here. You can also get a sneak peak of the issue for free online including one of my poems from the issue.

I have two poems in Red Moon District, an anthology from Underground Voices. You can order it on amazon. One of my poems is called "The Odd Couple Remake."

I have a poem in the newest issue of The Alarmist out of the UK. It's really colorful. You can order copies here.
