An essay of mine published over at Full Stop about Art Garfunkel, the vagaries of internet presence, and the continuing popularity of list-making. You will enjoy it.
For those of you in NYC, I’ll be reading for the Atlas Review vol. 1 Launch Party at Housing Works Bookstore, on Wed., Feb 6th. Reading starts at 7pm. I have a story in vol 1 called “Songs,” and the other work is top-notch. Get yourself a copy, and if you’re in New York on Wednesday, stop on by!
I just received word that a story of mine, “Let a Song Go Out of Your Heart,” was selected as the winner of the Beltran Award Project; this means it will be produced in a letter-press edition by the Robinson Press at the Kelly Writers House here in Philadelphia. I couldn’t be more pleased, and will post more info about the press and the project in the future. Looking forward to working on the edition, and on the party that will be thrown next year!
I’ve been enjoying the work of The Coffin Factory since their first issue – such a great magazine, willing to take chances on new work as well as some of the best work in translation I’ve seen recently in an American magazine – and I’m pleased to announce they’ll be publishing my story “The Way Love Sinks” in vol. 3. Excited to be a part of such a great project.
For anyone interested in hearing a live reading of one of my new short stories, please check out WXPN (88.5 if you’re a Philly local, on the web here if you’re not) tonight (2/27/12) at 8pm.
For those of you arriving after today (TEMPORALITY ALERT) the reading will be up on the Kelly Writers House LIVE website sometime shortly after the show airs.
Reading with me are Matt Jakubowski, Bridget Talone, Tim Leonido, and Patty Russo – music by the Old Fashioneds.
