poetry, fiction and translation

Month: June, 2013

Pacifica Vol. 1 Issue 2

Pacifica have just rolled out their new website and with it their new issue, into which I managed to sneak a poem written while I was working on Afterworks, and a more recent translation of a Rimbaud poem (about Napoleon III’s disappointed career ambitions, of all things). The former is still available to read on the new website, which is very pretty. The latter you’ll have to cough up for. The launch party got a nice write-up in Seattle’s The Stranger.


The Round Issue 8

The new issue of The Round, a student-run magazine at Brown University, just came out and it includes another of the ekphrasis poems I wrote around the time I was putting together Afterworks. You can view it online for free here.
