Just finished recording "The Dream Lives of Objects" using the Garage Band app on my laptop (apparently I don't have it on my PC), and figured out how to convert it to an mp3 and send it to SUPERSTITION REVIEW and I was pretty proud of myself this afternoon.
And now this evening I get an email from their student editor-in-chief asking whether I'd be the guest reader at their launch. "We are very excited to feature your work in Issue 28! To celebrate the launch of each new issue, we host a virtual launch party that features a guest reader. We appreciate your work and your contributions to S[r]. Would you be available to present as our guest reader at our launch party on Tuesday, November 30? You would be given 10-15 minutes to give a reading or present any of your work. You are also welcome to share via screenshare."
The obvious thing would be to show the Joseph Cornell shadow box while I read the piece in their issue (hoping I can figure out that technology in advance, but surely I can). Maybe there's something less obvious. I've done several ekphrastic pieces, most recently the one on Munch, Picasso, and Dora Maar for TINY MOLECULES, and the feminist odalisque one I'm working on now. At any rate, really pleased by the honor.
