Whirlwind of a Week

This past week was  incredibly fun and full. Here’s a photo essay since I’m too lazy to write it.

In Indiana, I visited and spoke to a class called Fictive Sex, then the Ropewalk Reading Series class, then did a reading  and q & a for the University. It was so much fun.

I flew home (three planes) to Portland (wow I just called it HOME) and got a taco with Kevin Sampsell. The next day I read at the Independent Resource Publishing Center for Lindsey Kugler’s book release party along with A.M. O Malley and Justin Hocking. (I love their writing so much).

The new location of the IPRC is awesome. (I’ll be teaching a class called: “Crafting the Experimental Essay” there on May 18th).

The next day I went to see Lindsey and Becca Yenser read in St. Johns. It was warm enough for a bonfire, and it was a really great night.

And now I’m taking a break from readings. My book came out exactly one year ago on April 3rd. I’m excited to get on the other side of the bar and write again.

This Friday, I’m going to see Jay Ponteri + Scott Nadelson read from their memoirs, just released from Hawthorne Books.
