New Interviews at H_NGM_N & Brooklyn Poets!
It’s a great week for me talking about myself on the Internet! First, Immaculate Disciples Editors Dan Magers and Steven Karl interviewed me about 8th Grade Hippie Chic for H_NGM_N’s THE NEW NOISE series. Thanks Dan & Steven!
I’m also very psyched to be featured this week as Brooklyn Poets’ Poet of the Week. Jason Koo was kind enough to feature my poem, “And I Will Always Love You,” and ask me fun questions about poetry and my favorite Brooklyn poets & mems & hangouts! Thanks Jason!!
