Just submitted my bio to Ninth Letter. They recently accepted a poem for the upcoming issue.
Ninth Letter is a great magazine out of the University of Illinois, which is cool, because I spent my first 25 years there–the state of Illinois, that is, not the university.
Spring/Summer features poetry by Matthew Dickman–a former advisor of mine at Vermont College of Fine Arts–and non-fiction by B.J. Hollars, with whom I’ve had a few short stories published.
I’m a total nerd, and not to give it all away, but the poem appearing in Ninth Letter is about the imagined next generation of particle accelerator. I recently had the privilege of touring Fermilab National Laboratory in Batavia, IL, which was nearly as thrilling as getting an acceptance from Ninth Letter. (I told you I was a nerd.) Fermilab houses the Tevatron, which was recently turned off because of the higher-energy work being done at CERN. If you’re ever in the Chicagoland area, it’s still worth checking out.
Next up, Geneva and the LHC!
