EVENT 45/2 is now out and the issue contains two of my poems. Check it out!

Waiting for Spring, or Something” is a poem about depressingly rainy winters, faith, doubt, teaching children, and the nature of happiness on earth. “Love and Paradise Lost” is about angels and sex. Both poems are from my working manuscript about fairy tales and the contemporary search for happily ever after. (If you’re keeping track, that’s a separate manuscript from the one about birds.)

The issue also has non-fiction by the wonderful Jane Campbell (who performed at Swoon once upon a time). I’ve also loved many of the other stuff I’ve read in the issue so far, so definitely pick up your copy and give it a read.
