Excuses, Excuses

As of today, my poems “Anniversary” and “The Winter Whales” are up on Portage Magazine‘s website. Portage is a little different from the markets I’ve published in before: Its specialty is art from the upper Midwest of the United States (not just speculative fiction/poetry!). My home state of Wisconsin falls into this category, and it’s also home to Carroll University in Waukesha, where Portage is headquartered.

If you look at the dates between this post and the last one, you’ll notice that I’ve been even worse than usual about updating this website. There’s a super exciting reason for that, which is that I’m spending this semester in Spain! While I’m here, my goals are to 1) practice speaking Spanish, 2) spend as much time as I can meeting new people and enjoying Spanish life, and 3) pass my classes so I can graduate on time. None of that’s really compatible with spending all my time staring at books of poetry and Word documents (except when I’m writing essays), so my writing output has been…nil. You can expect more from me when I come home in June.

Until then, here’s a pretty picture of Spain. Have a good spring!
