Got a new poem in a new zine–Dan McKeon & Emma Guilfoyle’s Pretty Cool Poetry Thing. It will cost you 26 dollars less than a print issue of McSweeney’s ($2). It is priced for the ppl. The poem is about love. What does it say about love? FIND OUT.


Dan was a former student of mine. It’s heartening to see him curate rad art outside of academia.


Paraphrase of a remark from an event on small press publishing and the civil rights movement: people are returning to zines because they no longer feel like digital spaces are safe. I love zines. I do not love that this is part of why they are necessary right now.
