I’m honored today to share some terrific news — four samples of my writing will be featured via Richard Hansen’s unique “Poems-For-All” project in California. As the video below shows, Mr. Hansen produces miniature “books” of poetry that are about the size of business cards. They can then be distributed randomly.
Here’s the description on the Facebook page for Poems-For-All: “They’re scattered around town — on buses, trains, cabs, in restrooms, bars, left along with the tip; stuffed into a stranger’s back pocket. Whatever. Wherever. Small poems in small booklets half the size of a business card. To be taken by the handful and scattered like seeds by those who want to see poetry grow in a barren cultural landscape.”
The poems selected were “Consciousness Haiku” and the first stanza of “Confession.” (Mr. Hansen suggested it worked fine as a standalone poem.) “Confession” first appeared at Dead Beats Literary Blog in 2013, and was then featured last year by Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine.
In addition, Mr. Hansen selected my 100-word horror story, “There in the Bags,” as well as my entries for the popular online Six-Word-Sci-Fi Story Challenge. (He also publishes micro-fiction in the “little book” format.)
This is such a cool, unique project, and I’m grateful to be able to participate.
