wikiHow book forthcoming from Black Lawrence Press

I'm thrilled to announce that How To Feel
Confident With Your Special Talents has
been accepted for publication by Black
Lawrence Press! I co-wrote this book
with poet Daniela Olszewska, using entries
from wikiHow as our daily prompts. We
wrote every day, sending half-poems
back and forth on email, finishing each
other's work by nightfall. Titles came
directly from wikiHow: "How to Ride
an Icelandic Horse," "How to Do the Cha
Cha," "How to Stop Co-workers From
Stealing Your Food." Look for excerpts
in journals; the book will be published
in 2014. Here's a link to "How to Sneak
Your Cat Into Work (with pictures)":
