I’m excited to announce that my micropoem “Date Night With The Astronomer” placed 2nd in the Balticon 51 Poetry Contest. I don’t know yet if I’ll be attending Balticon or presenting a reading, but after the con I’ll be releasing the poem via Patreon.
I’ve also sold my poem “Sunken” to NewMyths.com, where it will appear in their June issue. “Sunken” is loosely inspired by the mythology of JRR Tolkien’s Numenor.
Funded by Patreon, “Notes on a Translation: The Isoperimetric Inequality” is now publicly available. A hybrid of in-world scholarship and poem, it is to date one of my favorite pieces. Set in the Peninsular Kingdoms universe, figures appear who will be integral to the first novel, including the poet Zuria and her curious string of translators.
Finally, our Patreon usually features a monthly update available to the public. Read about April here, where my spouse and I announce our intention to join a multi-discipline MFA where I hope to focus on musical composition, dance choreography, and integrating my lived experiences more into my fiction writing. Life is hectic as I try to get it in under deadline. As always, Patreon and Twitter get updated more frequently than the blog, but I am grateful to all of you who support my writing wherever you catch the news!
