Coming in 2022 from Pink Plastic Press - The Book of Korinethians, a print anthology zine of art, poetry, flash fiction and essay about and inspired by the filmography of Harmony Korine, both as auteur and actor. My essay is titled after a song on the "Gummo" soundtrack and includes both real life stories and references to the film and the album.
I am delighted to have two essays in the Drunk Monkeys fourth annual Pop Culture Spectacular.

Two Cookie Minimum was a reading/storytelling series produced by Johnny Misfit out of Chicago. He visited Los Angeles and held an installment at Stories, a bookstore in Echo Park, and I got to perform on the bill with Johnny, Amber Garza, Kelli Callis, and Eryca Sender. Johnny wrote some nice words about it here.
Note from 4/13/2021: The larger work these excerpts came from is out of print (and Todd Taylor gave them not one, but two complimentary reviews... though the third title from my defunct indie press by a different reviewer was given perhaps a less glowing assessment).
Nevertheless...!!! You can hear some of my favorite parts of the story on this storytelling podcast hosted by Todd Taylor. I had so much fun reading with Myriam Gurba and John Ross Bowie, and this was also the night I met Jim Ruland for the first time. The whole experience is one of my most cherished memories, and I still admire all those people, Razorcake Magazine, and Gorsky Press.
