Hey friends! I’m super excited to announce that I have a micro chapbook forthcoming from Porkbelly Press in 2018! It’ll be titled Diary of a Filthy Woman and I’m thrilled about releasing it into the world soon! I have so much gratitude for Nicci and Ashley for believing in my work, as well as mentor Mary Biddinger and friend Paul Mangus (who edited many of the poems). Three of the poems in the chapbook will be published with Public Pool soon and this will give readers a little taste of what to expect.
Porkbelly is located in Cincinnati, which means a ton to me because it’s close to home (Akron). As far as I know, it’s one of the few presses that publishes micros. I like the idea of a micro chapbook (8-10 poems) because the poems are project based and very specific. It’ll give people a small sampling of my work and what I hope to build on in the next three years through the NEOMFA program. Thanks so much to everyone who’s supported my poetry in the last couple of years ❤
