In just a few hours I’ll be headed to AWP Minneapolis, where I’ll be tabling for The Indiana Review (table 332!), buying more literary journals than I responsibly should, seeing many writer friends and colleagues, and attending some cool events. Looking forward to my annual affliction, AWP totebag handburn.
I’m excited to have my story, “Puncture,” appear in Ninth Letter! You can read it here. And no, it’s not at all based on something that happened to me last April; I don’t know what you’re talking about.
I’m also thrilled to have my story, “This Will Only Hurt a Little Bit,” forthcoming in Day One. Carmen Johnson, an editor at Day One, is just phenomenal. What an honor to work with her again.
At Ploughshares, I wrote about the cost of higher minimum wage for bookstores, the Smithsonian’s new artist’s books initiative, the controversial Clean Reader app., & Barnes & Noble’s new shopping bags. And more to come shortly!
In just a month I’ll be stepping up as the next Editor-in-Chief of The Indiana Review. I’m so excited, though the amazing Britt Ashley has left me big shoes to fill. I’ve got some exciting things in the works, and I’m really looking forward. Check out how great IR is right here.
Some potentially very cool things in the works–more soon!
