This past Thursday, I did my first ever Spreecast show, reading Bodies Made of Smoke and then doing Q & A about the book and other projects. The really cool thing about Spreecast is that it archives the show so people can take a look at it at their own convenience, which you can actually do here. I’ll probably […]

I’m trying the workshop thing again, teaching one. I wasn’t able to pull it off in my own city so, borrowing from Rachel McKibbens, I’ve decided to take it online. Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 2:00 pm EST, I’ll be facilitating my love poem workshop, Our Hearts Are Power Ballads. I’m taking twelve people and all […]

On this day of love, I give you so many gifts. The first and biggest is this. This is a project I worked on in 2010 and 2011 and these are some of the stories that came from that project. It’s a semi linked collection of stories where relationships are destroyed in a fucked up […]

Yesterday, I was supposed to teach a workshop on writing love poems.

I just got back from participating in a fantastic edition of Culture & Cocktails. My fellow readers, Whitney Hamrick, Jocelyn Bartkevicius, and Nick Brown, killed it in various ways (I booked Nick for There Will Be Words in the future). I opened the night up with a set of all poems. Here they are. Hunt […]

Make sure to bring your favorite love poem or lyrics to your favorite love song, something to write with and something to write on. […]

It took me a week, but I’m finally, finally used to my new glasses. My eyes were a little worse this time and I found out from the optometrist that I have astigmatism in my left eyes. I would like to thank my parents for the faulty genetics (and a tank like immune system) . It’s been awhile […]

Ronald Stowers was nice enough to record my poem during the slam I was in this past Tuesday. You can watch “The Genealogy of Irvine Welsh” below. I’ve been working on my longest project yet and I don’t really have a deadline for it, taking it 500 or so words at a time. The current word […]

Heavy Feather Review‘s first issue debuted last Saturday. When I got my contributor’s copy and read the poems in them, I realized that I can’t let superstition deny the want to craft a good love poem for the person I’m with. I won’t expand on this here, because I’m going to also do something special […]

I’m teaching my first workshop on Saturday, February 11 over here from 11 am to 1 pm and it is free. Here’s the copy I wrote for it: Our Hearts Are Power Ballads J. Bradley facilitates a workshop on how to tap your inner power ballad just in time for Valentine’s Day. All you need […]
