They don’t want to kill anyone

Received the happy news that three of my poems will be published in upcoming Issue Sixteen of the elegantly designed online literary journal > kill author. “Every issue of > kill author is  subtitled with the surname of a deceased writer” and the writer for Issue  Sixteen will be Kōbō Abe. You can read a 2009 interview with the anonymous editors over at PANK.

P.S. Do yourself a favor, sit down with a mug of mulled cider and give a listen to the twelve minute audio of Jon Steinhagen reading his short short story “Washington Crosses the Delaware, Eventually” from the current Issue Fifteen. It’s hilarious and he reads it marvelously. There’s something (a lot) to be said for actual acting ability when it comes to reading your work aloud.

  1. What if they run out of surnames?

    Good news, in any case! I’m adding Toad and > kill author to my reading list. 🙂

  2. Congratulations! What an interesting journal… love the explanation about anonymity from the editors. People are so goofy.
