So excited that SUPERSTITION REVIEW has published my lyric essay “Fireflies.” I’ve wanted to get into SUPERSTITION REVIEW for ages. They’ve featured formidable writers such as Brian Doyle, Teresa Svoboda, David Lazar, Brenda Miller, Ira Sukrungruang, Molly Giles, Rigoberto Gonzalez, the late Michael Harper (a former teacher of mine), the late Judith Ortiz Cofer (whom I just wrote about for a/b: Auto/Biography Studies), and so many others. I’m thrilled to be in their pages. The essay began in Mark Doty’s generative workshop on the lyric essay at Writers by Writers @Tomales Bay, and has gone through numerous transformations since that time. This is also the longest recording I’ve ever done, with the trusty Garage Band feature on my Mac. I’m getting better at it, though you’re not going to mistake me for a professional.
The circulation figures for online magazines, well-established ones anyway, still boggle my mind. SUPERSTITION REVIEW reaches about 30,000 readers.
Oh, and they always have great covers. Love the cover art by John Sproul.
