Quail news: new poem, staff writer, Twitter presence, and a call for book reviews!

1. I wrote this creepy poem just for you! “Window” just came out in Quail Bell Magazine.

2. Speaking of which, Quail Bell just came out with two anthologies packed with poems, fairy tales, short stories, artwork, comics, essays, and articles. If you’re interested in reviewing Airborne: an Anthology of the Real and/or The Nest: an Anthology of the Unreal, for any journal, magazine, ezine, etc. that you’re affiliated with, let me know and I’ll hit you up with the galleys.

Interviews with Ian Hancock, TJ Anderson III, and Christine Stoddard for The Southeast Review!

I’m the Art Editor for The Southeast Review, which is one of my favorite things to do, and another favorite thing is conducting these Q&As with writers and artists who I admire. Ian Hancock, TJ Anderson III, and Christine Stoddard are all brilliant and fascinating people, so naturally they gave brilliant and fascinating answers. Check out the full interviews at The Southeast Review.

First up is renowned Romani writer, academic, and linguist Dr. Ian Hancock and his views on the power words, books, and inspiration. Next, poet and visionary Dr. TJ Anderson III examines the influences of mindfulness, surrealism, music, and adventurous poetic-living on the creative process. And lastly, writer, artist, and creative entrepreneur Christine Stoddard discusses Quail Bell Magazine and the magic of folklore, the real and the unreal, and “rocking many hats ” with her many, many impressive projects.

So read! Learn how to beat writer’s block through paintings, how to find metaphor in the Romani language, how to be be an artistic entrepreneur, how folklore and social justice color our words, and how the surreal and the real blend our lives with art.
