My story “Ars Poetica” now available on Kindle

My story “Ars Poetica“, which received a Writers of the Future silver honorable mention, and was published by Abyss & Apex, is available now on Kindle. From the Amazon description:

Rook is a military poet tasked with ferreting out human-like “bug” impostors. When her poetry notebook falls into enemy hands, Rook has to track an escaping bug through the ruins of an old city, or risk annihilation of the surviving human colonies.

Nourishment is the third of the “one-shot anthology” series. The completed collection has 25 stories and over 70,000 total words on the theme of “Nourishment”, all of them written and edited in their entirety within a rigidly constrained 24-hour period. This anthology is more than a collection of imaginative and entertaining stories—it is also a feat in creative writing.

Poetry Readings and Feedback – Free Online Group – Tuesday December 19th, 7:00PM EST

I’m running a small online group for poetry readings and feedback on Tuesday, December 19th, 7:00PM EST. It’s free.

Feedback should be encouraging and supportive, and should be phrased in terms of your reactions as a reader (not an editor): talk about what the poem meant to you, what images stood out, what emotions you felt, what parts connected with you, or didn’t, and so on.

We’ll warm up by first doing a few famous poems by professional poets. After things get going we’ll share some of our own work. (Sharing your work is not necessary. You are welcome to participate just to give feedback, or just as a listener, if your prefer.)

There is a max group size, so if you’re interested, RSVP ASAP.

Details and RSVP here.
