Small sale, and Wiscon!

1. I wrote a small poem about bees yesterday, and sold it also yesterday to Mitchell Hart’s new magazine, Through the Gate. Through the Gate will launch in August. The poem has no title and probably does not need one; it will be known by its first line, “if all of her would turn into bees.”


-“Here, We Cross,” the first publication of Stone Bird Press, is in my grabby hands. It is beautiful. I do not say this lightly, for if you know me, you know that I am perfectionist and hard to please when it comes to my own work. It is a gorgeous book. It contains 94 pages full of powerful and beautiful LGBTQIA poetry from Stone Telling, issues 1-7. You will be able to buy it from me at Wiscon, and one copy of Here, We Cross will be given away during the Outer Alliance party on Friday.

The Moment of Change. People, this is, like, amazing. Ok? Ok. I do not lie. Get the book at Wiscon from the Aqueduct Press in the Dealers’ room, and the Room of One’s Own, as well as at the Moment of Change reading, which will happen on Friday, from 9:00–10:15 pm (though may last longer) at Michelangelo’s. There will be COOKIES and also BROWNIES and ICE TEA for free. In addition, one copy of the Moment of Change will be given away during the Outer Alliance party on Friday.

The Sign-out.  I will be signing both HWC and MoC during the Sign-out on Monday.

3. If you are a MoC contributor, and are at Wiscon, please come SIGN MY COPY, which will be auctioned during the Con or Bust auction next year.
