  • About Me

    I'm a writer running up and down the halls of the literary underground. I smash cymbals together, I scream, I laugh, I sometimes cry.

    My work has appeared or is forthcoming in BLIP(formerly, Annalemma, Lamination Colony, PANK, LITnIMAGE, Bound Off, Wigleaf, and Per Contra, among others.

    I try to be generous and kind. I think it's important.

    Kelly Shriver – Feb 22, 2010

    A belated thanks for helping us get the ball rolling (bounding?) on the Bound Off group!

    (Your "man hands" tweet popped up right as I was typing this & scared the bejesus out of me.)

    You're a closet-obsessive f-nauter, you bearded person. The Bear engulfs you.

    Cynthia Reeser – Jan 18, 2010

    Beardman needs ta have a talk with you about being careful what you wish for. Jerk.

    Ann Rushton – Oct 13, 2009

    Thanks Mel. I feel like I am finally sitting at the cool kids table.

    David Erlewine – Oct 09, 2009

    does this mean you won't read one of my piece on Youtube? I was really hoping you'd read "Flares" from "This Zine Will Change Your Life." xTx really likes that one, even though she lords it over me, won't fave on here.

    David Erlewine – Oct 09, 2009

    David Erlewine forgets people he considers friends don't know what a damn goofball he is.

    Cynthia Reeser – Oct 07, 2009

    Frank Hinton – Sep 29, 2009

    Hello sir!

    Ben White – Sep 25, 2009

    I think you should post a piece from your collab with xtx, toss up a link in the info section, and let some people know about the cool thing you done.

    Cami Park – Sep 25, 2009

    Ben White – Sep 07, 2009

    I got my Heron in the mail, thank you Mr. Bosworth. I'm telling you in advance that if you become egregiously famous, I'm going to eBay the haiku.

    Tia Prouhet – Sep 07, 2009

    I need a snack. Got anything in your beard?

    J.S. Graustein – Sep 06, 2009
