I can’t believe we’re already in week three of the semester! I’m not sure how your first semester of an MFA in poetry is supposed to go down, but it’s been crazy wild here in Akron. I’m excited to share some upcoming publications, as my poetry has recently appeared in issue five of Foundry and in Public Pool. I’ve got some poems upcoming in Glass: A Journal of Poetry (Ohio Poets Edition), Frontier Poetry (later this month), and Flock Literary Journal (Issue 19).

Aside from all this madness, I found an artist to design the cover of my upcoming micro-chapbook through Porkbelly Press. This has made this entire project feel so much more real (and terrifying!) as I consider what I want for a cover.

My poetry classes have been great. I was away from poetry workshops and classes for about a year and a half, so it’s been refreshing to dive back into a community of writers and readers.

Here’s what I’ve been reading lately:

I also just recently read the new issue of BOAAT Journal. The issue was fantastic, and I really enjoyed poems by Katie Condon, Anaïs Duplanand Jayy Dodd. I was sad facing while reading it though because I stopped reading for BOAAT a couple weeks ago to focus on school.

I’m looking forward to attending AWP this year, and just this past Friday I reserved a hotel. Super thrilled about going, and I’m already making a mental list of all the books I’d like to buy there! 🙂
