Welcome to the front of the class.

Check it out! LitBridge asked me to write an article on my experience teaching while getting my MFA. I talk about teaching in the Writing Program and English Department at Syracuse and about setting some priorities for teaching as well as for writing upon entering the whole MFA experience.

It’s posted here now.

LitBridge article & chapbook feedback, so far.

I’m psyched to have been asked to write an article for the new writing resource website, LitBridge. I’ll be reflecting on my experiences as a TA at Syracuse–keep an eye out for the article in the fall, most likely.

Also starting to receive some feedback on the two chapbook manuscripts that I began sending out into the world this summer. One rejection so far–from a press I like very much–which is always a bummer no matter how you spin it. Another note I just got today from a press that had previously seen a sample of the chap, asking now to see the complete manuscript, so fingers tightly crossed on that one!

New writing resource: LitBridge

Have you heard about the new writing resource website developed by Kyle McCord & co? Their mission is ” to provide reputable journals, writing programs, and literary events to poets and writers across the country,” and so far I like what I see! Check em out here.
