Two of my poetry comics appear in Barrelhouse The Unintentionally Grim Issue #16, which had it's debut at AWP 2017——and has since sold out. Huge thanks to comic editor Killian Czuba for accepting these as poetry comics. I made these in the cold residency house in Wales. Get a preview of these 2 pieces.
Even though I'd been creating poetry comics for awhile, I didn't know they had a name until I met Alex Rothman, editor of Ink Brick, at AWP. These are the first comic poetry pieces I submitted, the first to be published. Purchase Ink Brick e-issues to see them in situ surrounded by amazing artists and writers of po-coms.
Smartish Pace selected An American Exodus as the winner of their Erskine J. Poetry Prize—the first contest I won, the first time I got paid ($50) for a poem. Art Fundamentals was a finalist in the same contest. American Exodus also caught the attention of Greek novelist, playwright and poet, Alexis Stamatis while he was at the International Writing Program (IWP) and I was at the Iowa Writers' Workshop (IWW) at the University of Iowa, and exists in translation somewhere in Greece.
