Check out the things I've written lately!

It's the week of the 4th of July, so I hope you're on vacation and enjoying the sunshine!

I always struggle with what to write this week because I'm not feeling especially patriotic with all the human rights abuses the U.S. has been perpetuating lately, so while I do occasionally try to let the holidays inspire themed posts, that's just not happening this week. 

Incidentally, I've also written several things for the internet lately that I'd love to share! Most of you already know that I'm a writer in addition to keeping this book blog (if you haven't read my work before, I'd be honored if you checked it out) and I like to share what I've been creating so here goes...

First up

An essay on building your record collection when you're broke published on Vinyl Me, Please

For my fellow writers, the editor was great to work with and they pay, so pitch them. 

Next up

A ranty feminist poem published in Heavy Feather Review. It's actually my first published poem, so I guess I can technically call myself a published poet now. 

For my fellow poets, they accepted this piece within 12 hours of submitting it so they don't seem to have the months-long agonizing wait that a lot of other lit mags do. I say submit away!

Lastly

An op/ed on how I plan to deal with the jerk pasting InfoWars stickers around my neighborhood published in the Columbus Free Press

For my fellow writers and angry liberals, there are Free Presses in many cities, so google around to find one near you. It's all volunteer-run, so they don't pay, but if you've got something you need to get off your chest or a resistance event people need to know about, they're an excellent resource. 

 

I'd be grateful for any views, shares, likes, etc. you can provide. It's a great way to support me and my work, as well as let these publications know you want to see more of this and more of me in their pages. 

I'll be back next week with your regularly scheduled books posts.
