spiritually in NYC even when I’m not physically there ✨ your girl is now a columnist at new york based lit mag @nocontactmag, with new CNF pieces every Monday EST. The column is called Curbside, which is, tbh, a whole mood this socially distanced season. Thank you @bloodandgauraa @hi_fidelliot for having me, and my love @shanehanjung for illustrating the Curbside logo x
My girlfriend: do you feel like years of blogging has prepared you for this
Me: one hundred percent absolutely yes
I’m now a columnist for NY-based socially distanced publication, No Contact Magazine. New CNF piece every Monday Eastern Standard Time – it’s been really fun for me to have a space to explore a variety of forms and techniques, especially in a space separate from my regular writing (fiction, long-form). The first piece was structured as a bingo card, and the second was in second-person, which is a criminally underutilized form. Though I must say that I did read an excellent second-person piece recently, the 2008 Natalie Diaz short story, How To Love a Woman With No Legs, in Volume 38 of The Iowa Review, which left me gasping for breath.
