Countdowns (and Yoda)

The #kettleshriek contest sure was fun! I’m happy to announce that Allyson Whipple, Donna Vorreyer, and Juliet Wilson will all be receiving copies of my book with SPECIAL SURPRISES inside (secret little notes on Post-Its, bonus poems, and other little goodies). Allyson, Donna, and Juliet---in the mail, your books (very Yoda-esque, isn’t it?).

Now all I can imagine is Yoda reading my poems out loud. And I love it.

Next week...a big anniversary on The Storialist (on Monday, in fact). And the countdown continues to the book’s official release (less than two weeks now)!

What creative projects are you working on, friends? What inspirations have been bouncing around your brain?


  1. Thanks so much for choosing me as a winner! It would be very entertaining to hear Yoda read your poems!

  2. Wooo! I'm stoked!

    Right now I'm working on the second draft of my next poetry collection. And toying around with some prose projects in a dilletante-ish sort of way. And brainstorming plans for a workshop series on feminist poetics to be conducted via Google+ hangout.

  3. Hooray! I can't wait - although I would've run right out (well, to the computer) and bought a book anyway. Now I have a reason to look forward to the mail.

    I am working on my series of Lewis and Clark-inspired poems. They might be a chapbook, or they may be a jumping off point for a second manuscript.

  4. Congratulations again..I am not working on anything creative...leaky pipes and stuff like that...
    congratulations to the winners...

  5. I already loved your title... but now hearing it said in yoda's voice gives it even more force.
