Where does the time go? I feel like it was just May, I was just getting ready for the Poetry Circus, and now here we are well into June.

While I go through a heap of personal challenges and changes, I am trying very hard to keep my focus on work and writing. I have a poem, “Our Bones Will Be Our Ruins”, appearing in Clever Girl Magazine soon. I have taken on the social media pages for The Citron Review and Drunk Monkeys. Of course, these are labors of love, so I am also looking for another paying gig (remotely for now); if anyone has any leads, thank you in advance for sending them my way.

I am shopping around a small chapbook and trying to find the inspiration for newer work. Things are hard nowadays, and not just for me… it seems everyone I know is really struggling lately (I blame, in part, this volatile election cycle and the soul sucking nature of social media), but I am trying to keep my head up and understand that even though I don’t know what my future holds, something good has to be on the horizon.

Things have still been quiet lately, which is my own fault. Though we did move, and I am trying to find myself again.

In May I was a poetry carnival barker with the incomparable Joey Gould. It was a windy day but we pulled it off.

Last month I attended the last installment of Theater of Words and Music, which was bittersweet. I did read a few poems I am still working on, and it was a nice gathering, a nice send off. I will miss this community of talented writers, artists, and musicians.

I have to make a conscious effort to get back into writing and submitting and becoming the person I used to be, or at least thought I was.

I have taken a position as a social media intern for Narrative Technologies. I wrote more about this on the blog page of this site, however, I would love for you to follow us along and interact with us as much as you’d like. Here are the links: Zoetic Press Facebook / Zoetic Press Twitter/ Lithomobilus Facebook /Lithomobilus Twitter

I am hoping to have more news soon, just please, if you know me, yell in my face constantly that I should be writing and not goofing off watching reruns of Bob’s Burgers.

5/1/15– Things have been quiet as of late. However, I read at the March gathering for Theater of Words and Music in Salem, MA, and there was a write-up about it here; Golden Walkman revisited some of their favorite features from 2014, including my poem “Lust”, and I will be preforming as a carnival barker at the Mass Poetry Festival Poetry Carnival tomorrow from 11-2 at the Salem Commons!

My writing is still stagnant. I have so many ideas and so little time, and when I do have the time I am not comfortable enough to get into my writing stride. Being in a basement for 10 months has not been kind to me.
A few friends have published works that can be found on the links page.
The Antioch community lost a peer last week, Daniel Reinhold. He was a brilliant and sweet man. His loss hurts.
