Some cool news over the last month! The new Jack Straw Anthology came out, which features my short story “Darling” alongside the work of a handful of talented Seattle poets and prose writers. Last Friday I read at the reading series, which was a blast–and was recorded live. They’ll release the recording as a podcast and/or possibly as part of a show on KUOW later on in the year. I’ll link to that stuff when it happens.

Also, a very short prose poem piece of mine called “First Rain” was just picked up by the literary journal Adroit. Their editor was kind enough to email me asking for work and I sent him the piece and they dug it. I’ll link to that as well when it goes live.

My short story, “Tonight We Are Kings,” just came out in the spring issue of Virginia Quarterly Review! It’s a wonderful publication with a great reputation and it’s an honor to be a part of it. You can read the story here…the print version should be out in a couple of weeks.

Also, signups are happening for my next Saturday morning fiction workshop through the Richard Hugo House, taking place once again at Ballard Homestead. It starts at the end of the month and runs eight weeks, from 10am-12. Here’s some details on signing up, but most importantly, you should know that each week coffee and goodies from Larsen’s bakery is provided.
