Slant’s 20th dysfunctional batch is now live with three poems by Jenny Sadre-Orafai.

Also, the new issue of  H_NGM_N is up with a nice little write-up by Jessie Carty of my chapbook, Inside Bone There’s Always Marrow. She also reviews two additional chapbooks by women writers.  In case you didn’t know: Grrls Rule.

I’m not sure if I mentioned this in an earlier post, given the copious amount of drugs I’ve been taking lately, but my poem, The Arrow of Time, was nominated by the fine ladies at Weave Magazine to Open Thread for their annual Regional Review.  Open Thread selected the poem and it will appear in their forthcoming issue – Regional Review V.2.

See- I’m cursed.  I’m telling you.  Are you convinced, yet?
