A few news items!
* I did an interview for the Stone Telling blog about my poem “Rep/ercussions (Carmina)” that was recently featured in their “Body” issue – they just posted it and you can read it here! This issue was just incredible in so many ways and I’m so honored to be a part of it.
* Speaking of things I was honored to do, the lovely Rhonda Parrish asked Sara and I to write the introduction to her amazing new anthology Fae, which is forthcoming from World Weaver Press! It’s such a good collection, guys, seriously – check it out asap!!
(Psst – you can also still enter to WIN a copy!!)
* I’m officially going to present at two conferences so far next school year – the first will be the 2014 International Conference on Romanticism – “Romantic Reflections: Twins, Echoes, and Appropriations” in Minneapolis, MN. I’m going to present a paper called “’Her Eyes Were Wild’: Echoes of Traditional Fairylore and the Gothic in Keats’ ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci’” on a panel organized by the new group Romanticism@OSU. The other conference so far will be the American Folklore Society annual meeting, “Folklore at the Crossroads” – I’m going to be doing a paper based on the article I co-wrote with Jeana Jorgensen for the Channeling Wonder: Fairy Tales on Television collection on the “Briar Rose” episode of the Japanese anime Grimms’ Fairy Tale Classics.
Otherwise I’m just reading away and trying to get some other aspects of my life on the right track. I’m a tiny bit behind, probably due to being at home for a while and then readjusting to being back in Columbus, but I’m getting back on track!
