Writing: Queer Forty
I'm proud to say I have two new articles up on Queer Forty! First is my column, Gays, Panic! In this edition I talk about how queer folk can identify with the otherness of the monster and suggest some new films that might help us under other "others." Check it here! Second, I interviewed the nice folx at Queerport about their event starting this Monday! Check out the interview, then go to the opening even on Twitch (psst... I'm the opening event).
I'm pleased to announce that I will be reading from my upcoming book, Vigil (bd studios), at the next WordShedNYC event! Give them a follow on Instagram to see all the wonderful things happening!
Aside from yours truly, David Groff, Nicole Sealey, and Salar Abdoh will be reading!.Join us!

Prizes will be awarded to those who stay up all night when everybody’s favorite cosmic cabaret of craziness explores its spooky side in the most maniacal marathon you can possibly experience this Halloween.

Friends: Carla Cherry
My friend, fellow educator and poet, Carla Cherry, just released a new book. Her poems often lean in to narrative and away from abstraction with skill and wit that I only seen in the works of southern gothic songwriters of the 60's and 70's. Her tone and subject matter a different, but her deft hand and ear render poems that are every bit as powerful. I would recommend Cherry's work to anyone who said they love poetry, and to anyone who said they didn't -- her words are a welcome into a different world.
