Humongous thanks to Chris Talbot-Heindl, editor of The Bitchin’ Kitsch, and to the whole creative team, for selecting my work, Life Lines, as the winner of their Sixth Chapbook Competition. The collection will be published later in the year, in both physical and digital formats.
Life Lines, my debut chapbook, comprises a series of micro-poems written while traveling on the road, keeping a ‘steady hand’, holding a camera which only once in a while turns inwards. The result is a sequence of ‘wide shot’, ‘mid shot’ and ‘close-up’ texts about the life journey, going through different altitudes, geographies, locations, seasons, and outlooks.
A section of this collection was first published in Sharkpack Annual, Longform Issue 2017. Here is my blog entry about this publication.
The Bitchin’ Kitsch, an arts and literature magazine published since 2010, is an important part of The Talbot-Heindl Experience, a Denver-based arts enterprise that houses many initiatives worthy of much support.
Will update my blog with news about the publication once it is out. Looking forward to it!
