Madison, Early Spring

I'm typing this from my bed where I'm lying on my side with my cat perched on my hip. Soon I will leave to seek juice, but for the meantime, I don't want to disturb him.

It's been one heck of a late winter/early spring here. In all ways, not just politically, but it does feel strange to have the nation's eyes returning to Wisconsin again so soon in the wake of the Prosser/Kloppenburg race.

As the isthmus begins to wake up for springtime, things are looking busier. I celebrated my 29th birthday last weekend among old and new friends and felt quite loved and at home here. I am now also a contributing music writer for The Rumpus and The Quietus, and I'm thrilled to be working for such quality people and quality websites. I'm extra extra thrilled that the amazing Katy Henriksen is the music editor for The Rumpus, and I will get to work with her. I'm also starting my own music interview and review blog (which will be updated more than this one), but I'm still generating material for a proper launch. You'll have to wait and see what I've lined up already!

This is going to be a busy writing weekend as well. Thanks to my friend/writer/teacher extraordinaire Miriam Hall, I'm taking a workshop with the legendary Natalie Goldberg, and I think it's just what I need right now.

Finally, recent publications:
