I thought it best to let you all know what’s happening on my end that’s made posting on here difficult. So, here we go!
Firstly, I won’t be sharing poetry on this website anymore. Though the immediate feedback is lovely, I’ve refocused my energy toward getting published. In fact, this new focus has already yielded results; you can see new work from me this fall in both The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature and the forthcoming LGBTQ Pride Month Anthology from Quillkeepers’ Press. Also, a selection of my recent poems won USF’s Estelle J. Zbar Poetry Award. Along with the rest of what life in a pandemic brings, my schedule has become unexpectedly full, but in a wholly positive way.
As for TranScriptures, the series will be taking a hiatus. I’m having to rework the format of this project, as I’m hitting emotional roadblocks. Religious trauma in the face of suppressed queer identity finds its way in most of my work. That being said, the bluntness that has come up with this type of writing has overwhelmed me. However, it is not dead, and TranScriptures will be returning with newfound purpose in the future.
Thank you all for your support. I hope you will continue to do so into the future, through name changes, life style shifts, and other such happenings.
