The season is busy, but I am pleased to share an update about two new poetry publications from my work, each one in a literary magazine approaching publishing from an angle that interests me. (Also, why does it seem that publishing news always seems to come in twos for me?)
First, I am very happy to have a new poem in Issue 3.2 of Strukturriss. Based in Ireland, the magazine concentrates on writing that explores experimental aesthetics and anti-capitalist politics. My piece, “Study for an Aerial View or Neighbourhood Formal or Kelly Green” is a hybrid piece working between prose and verse to explore urban planning language and the politics of urban territorial representation. A digital copy of the issue is available for 1.99 EUR on the site.
Next, I am equally as glad to share a poem, “Global Economic Forecast Optimistic Despite Uncertainty,” available online at Don’t Submit. The poem is a procedural text written from a source corpus of journalistic writing on recentu European politics; after a randomizing operation performed to chop up and shuffle the corpus, collage techniques were used to create a new poem. The text is part of a longer project that is forthcoming in its complete form, news of which I’ll share in the near future. In the meantime, I’m very grateful to the editors of Don’t Submit, a journal that underlines the imperative of its name by offering no rejection letters, and no acceptance letters either.
