A poem I wrote in October 2014, “What I Mean When I Say We Can Talk Without Poetry“, is included in this lovely collection by Whiskey Fish Review. Some of my favorite poets/friends/people are included: JL Martindale, Kevin Ridgeway, Thomas R. Thomas, and Larry Raymond Duncan. Edited by Zack Nelson-Lopiccolo. You can view the whole issue online here!
On Saturday, January 30th, I’ll be celebrating the release of my new CD/chapbook, How to Unexist, along with Larry Duncan’s new chapbook, Drunk on Ophelia, at Fox Coffeehouse in Long Beach. We will both be reading with the phenomenon that is BobKat and The Poet’s Band. The event will begin at 6 pm and include special guests, Nancy Lynée Woo, JL Martindale, and Daniel McGinn, plus a limited open read-with-the-band list. Both new chapbooks and other Sadie Girl Press items will be available for purchase. Ken Oddist Jones, digital artist/photographer, will be displaying and selling his work as well.

On May 17th, I had the honor of once again reading with Dave Williams & MBT at CALB at the Shore. I shared my time with four other female power poets, JL Martindale, Raundi Moore-Kondo, Elmast Kozloyan, and MsT Musze. We were all dazzled by the incredible improvisational talents of Dave’s jazz crew, Magic Bullet Theory. Even though traveling back in time is not an option if you missed it, you can actually hear all the performances on Bandcamp. If that wasn’t enough, you can download them in two volumes for FREE.
Listen or download at mbtmusic.bandcamp.com/album/prose-rhythm-and-noise-muliebrity-vol-1 and mbtmusic.bandcamp.com/album/prose-rhythm-and-noise-muliebrity-vol-2.
