Toad & >kill author

The December Issue of Toad contains two of my poems, “Ten More Minutes, Please” and “What? What Is It You’re Trying To Tell Me?”

Also, the December Issue of >kill author contains three of my poems, “A Theme Song That Never Gets Old,” “Get Your Climbing Boots On, Betty” and “Keep It Up and You’ll Freeze Like That.” Each includes streaming audio.  For your reading and listening pleasure.

Thank you to the editors at Toad and >kill author!

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.
