Hi guys, I hope this update finds every body well this Halloween season. It’s been a while since I have updated this blog and I actually have several things to tell you, so let’s get to it!
I have one track on the Save The Children Compilation from the aquietroom net label. This comp is full of all sorts of ambient and drone goodness and I am proud to be a part. All proceeds go to the Save The Children organization to help provide aid to the women and children of Afghanistan.
Another compilation has just dropped from Hello America Stereo Cassettes, a cool project that puts out digital and cassette releases fusing music, noise, and literature of all types. My track “Analog Machines” (which dropped a few months back with Beir Bua) is featured on their fall collection comp.
Dreich is an excellent literary journal hailing from Scotland and I am proud to have several poems featured in season 3/Number 12. I am proud of this one as I am in excellent company,
Speaking of proud, I am excited to announce I have two poems online over at the always excellent Beir Bua Journal out of Ireland. Beir Bua is a space to watch for sure, as they are making moves and doing some interesting things, including launching a barrage of interesting titles with Beir Bua Press.
Which brings me to the biggest news, and I guess it’s okay to spill the proverbial beans here, my next book titled <Reboot> More So… Disconnected will be released March 2022 from Beir Bua Press! I’m super stoked to have my next book brought into the world from a press that is shaping up to be one of the premier experimental small presses! I would like to give a huge thanks to editor Michelle Moloney King for selecting my work to put out into the world.
I have also have booked my first reading of 2022 (and my first reading in years, actually). More news on that in the future!
Until next time, Happy Halloween!
I have a new interview up over at the poetry and arts blog Fevers Of The Mind, I hope you’ll check it out. I talk about my influences and other writerly things. I had a lot of fun with this one, and am really enjoying opening up for my readers!
Poetry Mini Interviews is a wonderful project from Thomas Whyte in which he posts short interviews with poets and posts them weekly in bite sized chunks. Recently I had the pleasure of answering some thought provoking questions for Poetry Mini Interviews. The last question was posted today and you can read all five segments here.
I have two new poems up in the new issue of the excellent French journal Pro/p(r)ose! It is a pleasure to once again be featured in this magazine, and have the opportunity for my work to receive exposure internationally. Their journal is definitely worth checking out if you are fluent in French, or like me, modestly trying to learn. I hope you’ll check out my new poems.
I am very eager to be featured in more French journals, both in English and in translation. I am also interested in re-issuing previous chapbooks in French. Editors or translators out there feel free to get in touch, or point me in the right direction.
