restart button: rejection 1/100 (split lip)

a long time ago, Megan Falley challenged me to get 100 poetry rejections in a year.  i didn't get very far because a lot of life things came up & got in the way of me sending work out, including my own procrastination.  i am starting this challenge over again.  this is my year of pursuance.  that said, what better way to start off the Quest to 100 with a kind rejection from the good folks / planets over at Split Lip?

DIY or die

super excited to announce that i will be reading poems in Bag End.  no, really.  it's a new / continuation of a series of potluck house shows in Worcester, MA.  i will be performing alongside Ava Marie, Lady Queen Paradise, Jon the Archivist, Organs & The Weight We Carry, as well as fellow poet Jack Cavanaugh.  will be adding to the schedule soon!

public accountability because failure is so much more embarrassing this way.

public accountability because failure is so much more embarrassing this way.

i don't know if i am serious about quitting - i don't even like using the word quit because every time i have said, i'm quitting, i end up buying a pack that same day.  maybe it's too final & scary to say it, so i'll say, i'm taking a break.  being in good health & practicing clean living is important to me.  this is the last bad habit i have left to break - aside from drinking coffee, but coffee won't kill me.  who knows?  maybe i'll pick up another pack tonight when i go to the market.  or maybe this is a start.

oops, i did it again

during my 30/30 last year, i wrote a poem consisting mostly of album titles - specifically records i own & that i hold near & dear.  here we are, one year later, & it's found a super fun home in the newest issue of FreezeRay Poetry.  go check it out & sing along!

roots

this is a photograph of my maternal grandparents, Richard & Florence, whom i never met - both died this time of year about twenty years before i was even an idea.  still, in a strange way, i feel close to them - through their stories passed down to me by my mother & her siblings - & so naturally, they have been the seeds for many poems. xo
