We’ve been very busy at the Molotov Cocktail headquarters lately, and since I also read at the Phantom Drift ensemble reading at Mother Foucault’s Bookshop this last weekend, my blogging has been on hold. I hope to get some new material up soon, regarding MFA advice, writing contest advice, and I’ll tackle the controversial subject of submission fees. Oooooo. Oh my.

In the meantime, I’m thrilled to have a poem up on Rust+Moth today!:
Check it out.

And I highly recommend getting on their newsletter mailing list. They’re a mighty fine, hard working journal.

    1. Gosh, thank you very much, Aeryn! Quite the compliment coming from such a talented writer as yourself. If we ever organize a Molotov Cocktail Pacific NW reading, you’ll certainly be the first person we’ll ask to participate.

      1. I really dig poetry, and I especially appreciate a great, evocative line like the one you concocted here. In another life, I used to write quite a lot of poetry, and my first few publications were poems. Sadly, that muse left me over a decade ago, but when I read a poem like yours, it makes me long for a bit of meter and verse. 😉

        Oh, and thanks for the kind words. I’m blushing over here. I’d definitely be up for a PNW reading if you and MC were to put something like that together.

      2. Yeah, the Poetry Muse does NOT like being ignored. 🙂 She’s a fickle mistress. I’m not surprised you used to write poetry and I’m glad to hear that. The best prose writers often have a deep appreciation for classic and contemporary poetry. Sometimes, in many ways, poetry is just condensed prose. All writing is essentially observing the world through our own individual, unique lens. So, even though most subjects have already been written about, like a thousand times, no one can possibly see each subject the same way, since we all have very different life experiences, despite broader, overlapping themes/commonalities. This thought comforts me whenever I fear there is nothing new to write about 🙂

      3. That’s fabulous! Those aren’t easy to pull off. They sure are fun/challenging to write though. I hope you submit some for our M.C. poetry contest. At least a sonnet! I’ll have a word with the Muse for ya. 🙂
