Clearly Stated

My very cool talented cool weird cool talented cool very boyfriend Ian made this poetry game called Clearly Stated. You guys should submit, it is super fun. Also I drew a creepy cover for the second issue.


More Programmatic Poems!

Hey, oops, late update. Erik Rzepka is the guest editor at Truck and he put up a poem of mine there. And Bad Robot put up a track changes poem that I really loved making. Thanks guys!

Ian thinks I should make a chapbook of these robot poems. Maybe I will!

Bad Robot

The excellent blog Bad Robot Poetry featured a couple of my poems.

That image thing was me going to every hyperlink on the Wikipedia page for “Strange Loop” and taking a screenshot. I don’t know why I did that but that action is so addictive.

Spring is awesome.

So the reading was epic, as always. Sarah Bynum and Anna Joy make such an intimidatingly adorable pair, standing up there, talking with their hands about people’s work. Anyway, the results:

Poetry: Honorable Mentions– Thom Crowley and Jenny Alton

                Winner of Stewart Prize– Richard Chiem (surprised? I wasn’t)

Fiction: Honorable Mentions– Samantha Cutting, Amanda Ripley, Jayinee Basu (woo!), and Jenny Alton 

                 Winner of the Milton Saier Award– Leon Baham (again, no surprises there. He nearly brought the room to tears!)

I wonder what summer will bring, then.

Spring comes this Wednesday
