2014 has been quite a year. On a high level:
- The Bones of Us came out and I toured to support it on the West Coast (and finally met Adam Scott Mazer in New York).
- One of my Yelp review prose poems was nominated for a Pushcart Prize, another for Best of the Net.
- I got married and traveled out of the country for the first time.
- I got accepted into a MFA program that (hopefully) will challenge me in ways I need to grow as a writer.
- I started running a poetry slam again in a way that I’ve enjoyed myself doing it more than I did when running a slam with the intent to send individuals and groups to national competitions.
- I’m a semi-finalist for the 2015 Luminaire Award for Best Poetry.
- I did a really cool collaborative reading with Terry Ann Thaxton called The Bones of The Terrible Wife.
Overall, this has been a really good year.
Next week, I return to Atlanta for one night only at the event below. If you are in the area, come check it out.
