Persephone Kidnaps a Superhero

"Mariana in the South" 
by John William Waterhouse (1897)
Thanks so much, Heath Miller, for hopping on the Patreon train! If you, too, want to get on board, I'd appreciate it. 

Recently, I've managed to sell a couple poems! "Persephone Kidnaps Him" will appear in Liminality: A Magazine of Speculative Poetry later this year. It's my second sale to this fine magazine after last year's "The Pacific is Wine Pink."  

Then my poem, "Superheroes," will be out in Dreams and Nightmares next year. My first sale to this market! Many thanks to the editor, David.

In other news, I plan on participating in this year's Clarion Write-a-Thon. Clarion is a creative writing program that means a lot to me. It's a special program with a long history. Everyone accepted should be able to afford to go.

Dailying and Patreoning

A collection of my sketches from unscanned artwork.
I updated my Patreon! Yay! The page is mostly a hope for a fail safe option should I begin to struggle with money (hurray, Late Stage Capitalism), but that situation has yet to happen.

Also, the creators I've been finding through it are fantastic.

If you want to kick a couple bucks my way there, cool! If not, that's also okay.

Since the 40 Days of Poems challenge, I've continued producing poems and flash pieces daily.

It's been awesome. So awesome, in fact, I decided to remove the monthly word counter from my blog. I had fallen behind using it, anyway (last update: February), and this seems to work a lot better for now. Hopefully, it continues!

Another place I've been updating a lot recently?

Instagram.

Enjoy some photos of my cat, selfies, and random graffiti! Or me with bed head! Hurray!

Go to the Woods

Yay! I'm in issue 57 of Not One of Us! Printed next to Sonya Taaffe, too! Nice!

I found my contributor copy late on Friday and would have posted about it yesterday but, um, that was April Fool's Day.

I'm proud of this short story and so happy John Benson continues to provide a space for writers to share their work. It means a lot to me to be a part of it.


Please support him and the zine.
