I just launched my first Goodreads giveaway! If you’d like to enter to win a signed copy of my chapbook Pigtail Duty, recently released from dancing girl press, have a look see & add it to your TBR. The winner will receive one free copy mailed to their home with a special handwritten note on a vintage library return card.
Begun over eight years ago, Pigtail Duty is an attempt at piecing together fractures, at reassembling an identity. Identity being a continuous state of becoming, it marks the nodes & portals of transformation through the lens of a feminist suddenly married & mothering.
I’ll be the featured guest on this Sunday’s Poet as Radio show on KUSF in Exile. I’ll be discussing huminsect (dancing girl press), prism maps (dusie kollektiv), and the Poetry Center Chapbook Exchange, and will likely read new work from auto/bio. Tune in at 11:30am-12:30pm PT at savekusf.org – SF Community Radio.
I’m excited to announce that my first chapbook huminsect is now available from dancing girl press. As someone who’s been producing DIY chaps for a while, I know (and most of you do as well) how labor-intensive the process is – and I am so grateful to Kristy for her hard work and dedication to the printed book. Also – her books are stunning! I hope you will check them out.
A bit about the book:
Writing this work was a way to give witness to the convergences of the reader/writer by incorporating some found language derived from my autobiographical dictionary -a source text I’ve compiled of words new to me discovered through reading. So on some level – you’re all in it too. If we conceive of the body as a gathering place where knowledge becomes assimilated and experiences are felt, it becomes an intersection of all it touches and is touched by.
