Very excited to let you know that this month’s POP is up now, featuring part 1 of a 4 part essay by Matt Hart! Matt’s essay was so massive that we decided to split it up into 4 parts, each part appearing through out the month of May. What’s the essay about? The Sex Pistols, The Blood Brothers, Gertrude Stein, Jawbreaker, Storm & Stress, and Kenneth Koch. In addition to the four part essay, four selections from Matt’s Sermons and Lectures Both Blank and Relentless will be featured each week as well. Check out part one here. HUGE thanks to Matt. I am flattered and proud to be able to publish this!
Also, the POP page is getting a redesign/restructure in order to make room for the Song of the Week feature which will be appearing soon. I think POP is getting a new, spiffy logo too. Stay tuned for that.
In other news, my chapbook manuscript The City Salutes Itself is a finalist in the Boom Chapbook Contest from Bateau Press. Exciting! Fingers crossed! But either way, I’m excited enough to be a finalist. Bateau Press makes pretty, pretty books!
