Here are two upcoming readings/events I’m excited to participate in!
Huge thanks to Divedapper for a great time yesterday! The readings and workshops were so fun, as was the cotton candy and face painting 🙂
It’s officially August which means summer is (almost) over, unfortunately. On the bright side, it’s been a productive summer. I have poems forthcoming in Tinderbox Poetry Journal and Winter Tangerine this Fall. I’ve successfully completed about 50 poems this summer through the help of a poem-a-day challenge I did with some friends! I’m ready for the second year of my MFA to start through the NEOMFA and I’m excited to share this interview I recently did with the Akron Beacon Journal. Here’s to a great start to a second year!
Check out some of my favorite reads from this summer:
- Odes by Sharon Olds.
- The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde
- Some Say the Lark, Jennifer Chang
- Hard Child, Natalie Shapero
- Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude, Ross Gay
- Copia, Erika Meitner
- Barbie Chang, Victoria Chang
- Incorrect Merciful Impulses, Camille Rankine
- The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton
- Diving Makes the Water Deep, Zach Savich
See you soon,
Big thanks to everyone at Juniper Summer Writing Institute for a great week! ❤ It was so much fun being in Dorothea Lasky’s and hanging out with so many inspiring people!
So far, this summer has been super productive! I’ve been reading manuscript for The University of Akron Press and overusing our *HOLY SHIT* button! I’m feeling very lucky to be able to spend time with some beautiful work. Y’all have until June 15 to submit your manuscript!
Lately, I’ve been writing a poem-a-day and getting reading for Juniper Summer Writing Institute. I’m so excited for June 17 to arrive!
