Somehow just noticed I made it to the Wigleaf longlist, so I guess this pizza I’m having will now be celebratory pizza! It’s long been a dream of mine to have a piece recognized by them. Wow. Huge thanks to Mallory Smart and Maudlin House for homing this! 😱
I can talk about this now! My chapbook Enby Late Starter has made the longlist over at LUPERCALIA press! I’m so honored to be among such talent, so happy I bloomed, no matter how long it took to happen. 🌼💜🖤
It kind of feels like the universe is trying to say something when my CNF about being proud to be myself while fighting against a transphobic, shitty boss goes live the same day that I get a job offer from a really cool, inclusive place for a way better salary. I quit today! ✌ You can read the piece here!
Super stoked to share that I’ll be editing an anthology all about favorite childhood video games with The Daily Drunk! If you’ve got some good nostalgia for me, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Aaahhhh!!! The Midsommar anthology is live! Free ebook! Print version coming soon! I’m in this! WOO!!! I’m so freaking excited about this!!! Huge thanks to Kristin Garth for including my poem and putting this all together, The Daily Drunk for making this a thing and being such a gift to the community, and a/perture cinema for being one of the coolest movie theaters ever. 😊 Read the full free ebook here!!!
This CNF is one of the hardest things I’ve written, but I’m glad I did. This is for Chuck Yacullo. I never got to say this, so: Thank you for being there, Chuck. I love you.
Here’s my single sentence flash on coming into a queer enby identity through shifting haircuts over the years & fighting dogma & norms; the accompanying art by Jay Baker is incredible, & huge thanks to Jason Thayer & Complete Sentence for taking this!
A writer I admire was a beta reader for The Brother We Share, and they sent their notes last night. Said things like “pushing the boundaries of what is possible” and “still in awe.” Said the manuscript was “perhaps the most immersive and visceral thing” they’ve read in a while. 😭 So yeah, that just made my week.
Could not be more stoked to share this! I’m a huge fan of Micro, one of my favorite podcasts, listen to it every week, and I can now say that I’ve been on the show! Today’s episode is basically Halloween in May, and I’ve got a spooky little dystopian micro for you guys. Huge thanks again to Mallory Smart over at Maudlin House for picking this one up in the first place! It’s time for SPOOKS.
Woke up to a super kind acceptance from J. Archer Avary over at Sledgehammer Lit! This is a flash, but it’s also a straight up excerpt from The Brother We Share, so this feels especially fantastic. Encouraging to see that this story is already resonating. This piece drops 6/14!
