Between my new job reading for Jersey Devil Press, my recent publication in the awesome pitch issue of Sententia, and my wading into the deep, cool waters of the Portland literary scene, my authorial connections have grown exponentially in the past month or so. Which is awesome. But it also means that I know more cool writers and poets for whom I get to share publication news, so here are some cool things from people I know that have happened in the last week or so:
- Hobie Anthony has a couple of announcements over at his blog — four poems in The Prose Poem Project and an e-chapbook he’s working on that might share a title with his cool story in Jersey Devil Press, “Brown and Green.”
- Ryan W. Bradley has a whole handful of announcements over at his blog, including a poem in Big Lucks 4 and a vicious little short story at Housefire.
- John Sibley Williams has a couple of poems in Bryant Literary Review, and his chapbook Autobiography of Fever is available for review at Prick of the Spindle (if you email the magazine and they accept your proposal to review the book, they’ll send you a copy, apparently for free!).
- And the new issue of Unshod Quills, edited by Dena Rash Guzman, is out now and contains some awesome work, including a series of very cool video poems, and a set of prose sketches and hand-drawn portraits of serial killers by featured author Riley Michael Parker.
Phew! I think I’m done.
Keep up the awesome work, gang, and I’ll keep trumpeting your successes!
