Boston Review

As we were driving through the mountains and trees and over the creeks and two lane roads of southern West Virginia, on the way to our show tonight in Princeton, WV, I found out the Boston Review is going to publish my poem called "you appalachian appropriating asshole poets", which I've been reading around the country for the last year or so and I thought it would never find a home and I'm freaking stunned and thankful, and I'm glad I got the news in a van with eleven of my good friends who are so freaking dedicated to promoting the arts in West Virginia. Just feeling super thankful for all of this and am glad to be surrounded by all of these mountains and trees and people.
