NEW POEM! It’s full of the gay. OKC.NET came by my house and interviewed me about the new book. They asked me to do a poem. It’s called Boston Marriage. It’s in the book. Yay, ART!

I love everything about this. Your book will be mine soon, and I cannot contain my excitement :)

Conversations: The Old Chicago Author

“If you learn how to communicate effectively to an audience, you are not only figuring out how to say the things you need in order to succeed, but you’re also developing empathy and compassion to the person you’re talking to.” -Robbie Q. Telfer

Interview I did with Robbie Q. Telfer, who is an awesome Chicago poet involved with The Encyclopedia Show, Louder Than a Bomb, and Young Chicago Authors.

See him cohost The Encyclopedia Show this Wednesday. Seriously, it’s one of the best readings in the city.
