I’m Reading at Kent State University on October 5

Friends! I’m thoroughly jazzed to announce that I’ve been invited to read at Kent State University on October 5.

This event is a reading and discussion of the flash fiction/prose poem/flash nonfiction linked sequence. I’ll be reading/discussing along with Nin Andrews, F. Daniel Rzicznek, Kathleen McGookey, Lucas Southworth and Molly Fuller, some of my fellow contributors to Nothing to Declare: A Guide to the Flash Sequence (White Pines Press, 2016). It’s open to the public and should be a gas. If you’re in the area, swing on by!


Reading by and discussion from contributors to Nothing to Declare: Flash Fiction Sequences:

Nin Andrews, F. Daniel Rzicznek, Kathleen McGookey, Lucas Southworth, Molly Fuller, and Christopher Citro

Nothing to Declare: Flash Fiction Sequences (White Pine Press/Marie Alexander Series, 2016) is the first anthology of this emerging hybrid form. Part prose poetry, micro fiction, or flash fiction, and often a collage of more than one, the flash fiction sequences laces together various stand alone pieces of writing into related larger works.

Reading and discussion will take place at Kent State University; room to be announced.

Co-sponsored by the NEOMFA and the Wick Poetry Center.


Nothing to Declare: A Guide to the Flash Sequence (Marie Alexander Poetry Series)

Hi friends. I’m thunderingly delighted to have received my contributor copies of Nothing to Declare: A Guide to the Flash Sequence published by White Pines Press. This anthology contains five prose poems from my ongoing sequence called The Little Book of Monsters. Its 300+ pages also contain sequences by a host of amazing poets and writers including Nin Andrews, Carol Guess, Gian Lombardo, F. Daniel Rzicznek, Julie Marie Wade, Gary Young, and Jim (yes, that Jim) Harrison. There are sequences of prose poems, flash fictions, lyric essays, fairy tales, koans, epistolary address, and other cross-genre work. Thank you editors Robert Alexander, Eric Braun, and Debra Marquart and the entire Marie Alexander Poetry Series team for creating this amazing anthology!
