I’ve joined Jessica Piazza’s Poetry Has Value project for 2016, meaning I’ll be keeping a public record of my poetry submissions, fees, acceptances, payment, and rejections. I’m excited (and somewhat terrified) to be part of this!
If you’d like to see the parameters of my project and/or if you’d like to read a specific list of things I fear, here is my introductory post.
I’m pleased that one of my poems is included in Done Darkness, a new anthology from Orange Hat Publishing.
What an honor to have my poem “The Book of L” in Rock & Sling alongside work by fantastic writers I know: Karen An-hwei Lee, Devon Miller-Duggan, and Jessie Janeshek. I’m also loving poems by writers who are new to me, especially J. Morris and Rebecca Lauren. Wow! Thanks, Thom Caraway!
My contributor note about my current poetry project is featured today on Rock & Sling’s website! Thanks, Thom Caraway and company!
“This project began because I was tired of people taking language from the Bible out of context and using it as a weapon against other people, so I decided to take language from the Bible out of context and create art…”
I’ve been dreaming of starting an online literary journal for several years, and today I published the first issue of Whale Road Review!
I’m so thrilled by the quality of the work in our inaugural issue. Enjoy!
My paper on Elizabeth Alexander’s inaugural poem, “Praise Song for the Day,” was just accepted for publication in TAB: The Journal of Poetry & Poetics.
I’ve been working on this off and on since 2010, and I’m so thrilled that it’s found a good home! I’ll certainly post a link here when the paper is published.
I can’t wait to be part of The Second Poetry Circus next Saturday, September 19th, 5:30 to 9:30 at The Merry-Go-Round in Griffith Park. It’s free and open to the public! Join us!
I’m realizing my dream of starting a new literary journal. Welcome, Whale Road Review!
Whale Road Review is a journal of poetry and short prose. It will contain short creative work (everything under 500 words) that lingers long after it’s read. It will also include short pedagogy papers and a range of reviews. It will be simply designed and mobile friendly. The first issue will be published in December 2015.
Please like WRR on Facebook and Twitter, and send some work!
The Gospel of the Bleeding Woman is now available in a Kindle edition!
I didn’t know the publisher was doing a Kindle edition, so this was a fun surprise. Thanks, Wipf & Stock!
You can still purchase a signed paperback version online or directly from me for yourself or someone else. Email me at KatMann @ gmail.com.
