1st Milwaukee reading & adventures & poem sightings

Dear friendlies,

I’m grateful for finding myself settling into a new community, new school, new city, new life!  This month here has been full of adventure, comparison, discovery and challenge & I’m excited to be reading for the first time in my new adopted city of Milwaukee along with other members of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee creative writing community here:

Thursday, September 23, 7pm
UWM Creative Writing Graduate Program Student/Faculty Reading
w/Christine Stroik & George Clark
Paddy’s Pub, 2339 North Murray Avenue, Milwaukee, WI
Free and Open to the Public but must be 21 years old


Also,  I’m happy to report (very belatedly) that The Heart’s Traffic won the 2010 Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Poetry and an Honorable Mention from the Eric Hoffer Award.

New poems/writings are up or out here:

** “Letters To” Ifesto published in Esque, a new online journal edited by the fabulous editors Amy King & Ana Bozicevic, alongside Oetry by poets like Tamiko Beyer, Kate Durbin, Evie Shockley, Ken Chen & Brandon Shimoda.

** new poems from my Shiny City series in John Hoppenthaler’s Poetry Congeries series in Connotation Press

** & a beautiful issue of Eleven Eleven #9 in the mail with more Shiny City poems & the poems of other lovelies Natasha Marin & more!

Thanks for reading/listening & see you on the road!
