This Is Just The Beginning

I’m trying the workshop thing again, teaching one. I wasn’t able to pull it off in my own city so, borrowing from Rachel McKibbens, I’ve decided to take it online. Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 2:00 pm EST, I’ll be facilitating my love poem workshop, Our Hearts Are Power Ballads. I’m taking twelve people and all I ask is that you buy a copy of one of my books as the fee. If you are interested, e-mail me and we will do this. Here’s the info about the workshop

Come try your hand at love poetry! J. Bradley facilitates a workshop on how to tap your inner power ballad just in time for Valentine’s Day. All you need is to bring your favorite love poem or the lyrics to your favorite love song, paper, something to write with, and an open heart.

Ampersand Review was nice enough to review Bodies Made of Smoke, which you can check out here. I also have author copies now. If you’d like an autographed copy, you can e-mail me here for more info.

InDigest Magazine did a really killer reading for the (alleged) end of the world on 12.21. I contributed a poem to it, which you can watch below.
