I’ve recently had three poems published. The first, A Line From This Poem to Me, was published by Tealight Press. It’s about discovering my gender in a space that couldn’t even say its name. Two other poems, She Asked Me Why I Write Poetry and It Made Me Want to Sing, were published in issue 2 of Ghost Heart Literary Journal. This issue, called Transcend, is dedicated to the voices of creators who exist in the trans experience. If you’d like to read more of my poetry, you can find it on my Poetry page.
Centring our creative community
I usually feature writers, but we have the ability to work remotely during lockdown. Tattoo artists aren’t so fortunate. One of my favourite artists, the one responsible for the poppy tattoo on my arm, has started selling prints on Etsy. E.K. is more than an artist—they are also part of a community of tattoo artists that work to make their field more safe, equitable, anti-racist, and sustainable. Their work is bold, clean, and usually nature inspired. You can view their work and make purchases here.
There is some jazzed-ness going on right now, as my flash fiction short story, Seeking Same, was featured on The Book Smugglers Non-Binary Authors to Read list created by A.C. Wise. Other featured creators include L.X. Beckett, Omar William Sow and Akwaeke Emezi. Click here to read more!
I’m meeting with playwright, author and all around glorious human D.J. Sylvis. What could this mean for the second season of Moonbase Theta, Out?
Wait, you don’t know Moonbase Theta, Out?
It’s a sci-fi audio serial and podcast that one fan described perfectly: “The episodes are short and, like potato chips, you can’t eat just one!”
I was fortunate enough to guest star in one of those delicious potato chips. And not to be salty, but I’m hungry for more. Updates to follow (cue mysterious music). In the meantime, go enjoy this fantastic podcast.
Salutations, web humans!
My new flash fiction short story, Seeking Same, is up on Apparition Lit. Written with an eye to passing the Topside Test, this story is about non-binary love, computer dating, and the ways we find ourselves in, with, and reflected by others.
