I was interviewed by the SFPA - Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association about my writing background, my favorite trends in poetry today, being a Texas writer, and my love of dragons.

I'm really thrilled to announce that I'm guest editing the next issue of the Science Fiction Poetry Association's online journal, Eye to the Telescope! This is a fantastic online journal for poets who write speculative, cross-genre, and straight up scifi/fantasy genres!
This issue of the Eye to the Telescope explores the theme of “Time.” The editor seeks poems about time travel, time machines, time lords, history-hopping, alternate timelines, clocks, white rabbits, the quotidian, and odes to years past and future. Send poems that cover a single life in a few lines, broad interpretations of the theme such as characters who have little time or eternity to live, or quantum theory and continuums. Any genre or form, writers of all backgrounds encouraged to submit.
Eye to the Telescope is a paying market!
I look forward to reading your work :) Please note, it's likely that shorter poems will fare better in the submissions due to the limitations of budget.
I'll be attending Illogicon January 12-14th in Raleigh this year. I'd love to meet you if you'll be there!
As the end of the year draws to a close, I'd like to share with you the works I published in 2017 that I'm proud of. 2017 was a great year for me and I'm so grateful to the editors who have taken my work under their wings. I wrote a lot more experimental poetry this year, which people seem to enjoy, and I published my first full-length story, which was pretty exciting to me.
If you've read my work or nominated it in the past, I am truly truly thankful. I couldn't get by without the support of my amazing writer friends and the writing community as a whole.
