2018 has been a weird year so far.

I graduated from Florida State with my MFA, quit my job teaching high-school English, turned down a spot in the Creative Writing PhD program at Ohio University, and convinced my fiancée to move to Maryland with me so that I could fulfill my not-at-all-lifelong, not-at-all-dream of becoming a technical writer.  (I promise, dear reader, that writing engineering proposals is not endgame for me.  It does, however, pay the bills, and it’s a hell of a lot less stressful than teaching.)

Given all of this upheaval, my writing has been slow.  Like, glacially slow.  However, I do have a few new things you can peruse if you’re so inclined:

  • My essay “Ethereal Girls” is included in this beautiful anthology by Wash and Fold Press.  Seriously, it’s a gorgeous little book, and I’m honored to have a space in it.
  • An essay called “Shame, A History” appeared in Rubbertop Review, Issue 9, though I’m having trouble tracking down a link to  it.  I’ll update you if one blossoms out of the ether.

I’ve got two sestinas forthcoming: the first, Note,” in Lavender Review; the second, “Vice,” in Red Weather.  Stay tuned for links!  Also, I’ve got an essay called “Lucas & Leo” forthcoming from MR. MA’AM.  I’ll post a link to the essay when it’s up, though fair warning–it was a tough one to write.  Mostly because it involves delving into one of the most spineless and shameful things I’ve ever done, and to a longtime friend no less.  (So…something to look forward to…?!)

In the meantime, catch me working on a novel in my cubicle during lunch hours!  It’s a glamorous life, isn’t it?
