New Fiction Publication

The latest issue of The Florida Review is out, and it contains the title story of my collection, “A Kind of Solitude.” It is a story about an old Cuban peasant with a troubled past who finds himself trying to decide whether to confess to an accidental crime he has committed, or bury the evidence for good.

This story got me into Boston University’s MFA program and in many ways changed my life.

Big thanks go out to the great people at The Florida Review and to everyone who provided feedback on this pieces years ago. I’m excited to see my work in such wonderful company.

Backbone Press Best American Poetry Blog Feature

The wonderful poet and editor Crystal Simon Smith, founder of Backbone Press, talks about the press in this interview available in the Best American Poetry Blog.

I’m really happy to have had my poetry chapbook published by Backbone and to see it mentioned–its cover shown–in this feature. Crystal is doing great work by providing a platform to publish poetry by a diverse range of authors, particularly poets of color.

As she states, “It’s important to note when I say poets of color this includes poets of all diverse backgrounds: Asian, Latino, Native American and so on. Our niche is cultural writing, not just poetry, by African American writers. We need more venues and spaces focusing on diversity.”

You should definitely support her press and check out what she has to say!
