Updates & Readings & POP & SOW…it’s been a minute

I haven’t been very good with updates lately.  In fact, I forgot to tell you about some readings that I was going to be doing and that are now done!  I read on September 5 with fellow BAP author Dominque Townsand at the Denny Gallery on the lower east side.  I do have some pictures though!  The art was really fantastic.

Then, last week I was in Atlanta, GA very briefly (only one night!) to read for the What’s New in Poetry series at Emory University.  It was pretty neat.  Check out this awesome flier.


It was a great trip and still so warm out that we were able to sit outside and enjoy some adult beverages after the reading.

What else?

Well, here’s a new Yoga Sleuth.  This one about a studio in Hoboken.  It was a good one.

I just put a new POP up by Dorianne Laux.  You can check that out here.  And since we spoke last there have been new Songs of the Week by Katie Jean Shinkle and Christopher Kondrich, rounding out the Denver Quarterly residency.  Then we had pieces by Peter Milne GreinerAnnik Adey-Babinski, and Brett Fletcher Lauer.  Up next is a Black Ocean residency, followed by a Flowers and Cream residency, followed by…well, I don’t know yet…

Also, I am going to be reading at the Madison Public Library on Thursday, October 3.  This reading was set up in conjunction with the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship in Poetry that I received in 2012.  Will be interesting to read my poems in New Jersey.  It is at a reasonable hour and my mom will be able to come.  That never happens.

What else? Just busy, Busy is good.  Girls Write Now again this year.  AND! And I am teaching a first year writing class at my alma mater, William Paterson.  It’s only been two weeks so far but it is lighting up a part of my brain that has been dormant for a real long time.  Good things.

Oh, also, the bf and I are running a 1/2 marathon this Sunday.  Say a little prayer for us.
