[PANK]

In 2010, PANK Magazine was the first literary journal I ever submitted to. Seven years later, I am damn excited to say my story, “I Dream of Jeannie,”* is on their homepage (direct link here)! And damn thankful this writerly dream has become reality.

John Wayne in Santa Fe

I’m so excited to share that one of my short-short stories from a series de/recontextualizing “icons” of masculinity, “John Wayne Learns He Is a Woman in Barcelona,” was recently published in Issue 9 of the Santa Fe Writers Project Quarterly! In it, I hope to investigate constructions of whiteness and masculinity, and how narratives of imperialism and power reify these constructions.

We’ll never be “Royal”

I’m stoked to post that “Royal” has found its home at The Woven Tale Press!

With this, my first fairy tale, I hope to discuss cultural and capitalistic premiums placed on whiteness and power. The issue (Vol. V #3) is live and free to read online with a subscription!
