From NY Mag…
NEA put up the Writers’ Corner for my year– here’s my page.
Here’s a link to a list from flavor wire (I like the list –) which includes a link to my BOMB piece “Before”.
Actress Kelley Ogden doing a really beautiful reading from Apocalypses at our local Stories on Stage. This is an actress who really understands the dynamics of writing for performance and writing for the page. I was delighted.
Godzilla Versus the Smog Monster at Electric Literature Recommended Reading.
at Tin House: a blog about writing in Rome for a year. It’s a piece developed out of some of the posts on this site.
“My Mother’s Presence in the Universe” New fiction available at Airplane Reading.
“A Woman with a Gardener” from The Entire Predicament reprinted @ the Lavender Review.
Profile for the American Academy in Rome
Little q&a participation at Tin House for the Fantastic Women anthology.
“Material”– A craft essay — I hardly ever write non-fiction! — in The Writer’s Notebook.
“Let Me Tell You What I Got” a story written in 24 hours as part of the “seven rings” collaborative game on Huffington Post.
“Eyes of Dogs” a story on WebConjunctions. You have to scroll down to 5.20.08, and you may get distracted on your way by the all the gorgeous work they have up there. There’s also a free file on itunes of me reading the story at Bread Loaf, listed under Middlebury College, Bread Loaf Summer 2008: Lectures and Readings. This was one of my favorite readings ever, in part because I read with Amaud Jamaul Johnson, and he’s on the file with me. This story is also in My Mother She Killed Me My Father He Ate Me, an anthology of contemporary takes on fairy tales from Penguin Classics, edited by Kate Bernheimer. Here’s its facebook page, which has lovely pictures and excerpts.
In winter 2010 I collaborated with contemporary dancers and video artist Mary Franck on this LEVY Dance piece called Everyone Intimate Alone Visibly.
Early versions of the “apocalypses” came out in all sorts of journals and literary sites. It was really integral to the process of writing them to see which pieces editors selected and then to arrange and rearrange the order of the pieces variously for years. A real course, for me, in something like plotting. Here’s where some of them are:
There are four apocalypses in this fashion magazine called Flaunt. They’re in the print edition of the Fabrication issue. Ander Monson also in this issue.
Weekly Rumpus apocalypses.
McSweeney’s is featuring an apocalypse a week on the Tendency. Very nice.
The American Academy Arts index includes a video of me reading four apocalypses in my studio.
Evan Karp reads some apocalypses . I love the innocence in his voice. And the sneeze.
