 Unlost Journal publishes all kinds of hybrid pieces that use source materials: cut-ups, collages, erasures, centos, found poems, etc. Always stimulating to have a look at what Dale Wisely and the crew is publishing.

The latest edition (#30) includes a cut-up/collage with a twist by me (replacing the words writer/s with winter/s), called "Winter: Echoes." Since winter lingers (at least here in Japan), it's a timely read. Enjoy all the creative offerings in this issue, and previous ones as well!

Finalist at Orison. Yay! But also, Boo....

 My manuscript Else was a finalist for the Orison Chapbook Prize. I love Orison Books, and would  be ecstatic to be published by them, but not this time. 

In the meantime, in the gap between when I sent them this manuscript and when the results of the contest were announced, this book has gone from chapbook length to full manuscript length. Perhaps I'll send it again to Orison under the new category....who knows. This whole submissions thing is so disheartening....
