Latest Cat13 News!

If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, hop on over to The Rumpus and read my essay: “Where I Write #12: A Stable in the Floodplain” (don’t forget to click the link in the last paragraph to see how bad the floodwaters are in Nebraska and Iowa).

For the upcoming issue of Grey Sparrow Journal, I have been promoted to associate editor– exciting!!

Over at InDigest Magazine, I will soon be taking over as Blog Editor while I continue reviewing films. Very killer! (My latest review for the film One Lucky Elephant should appear soon.)

I’ve also picked up a couple sweet new gigs at PANK Magazine as well: I’m reviewing books and serving as a first reader for submissions!! (My review for Johannes Göransson’s new Entrance to a colonial pageant in which we all begin to intricate will be posted on the PANK blog on July 8. Reviews for Adam Novy’s The Avian Gospels, Christian TeBordo’s The Awful Possibilities and Darby Larson’s The Iguana Complex will be forthcoming soon after.)

All in all, I’d say this summer is off to a really good start!!

Just so you know, I am, in fact, not dead.

So far 2011 gets mixed reviews from me. There has been a lot of turmoil in my personal life (thus my not so conspicuous absence from the blogosphere), but I’ve also had some pretty kickass literary experiences as well.

First, of course, was getting published in PANK Magazine (you can read/ listen to the story here: http://www.pankmagazine.com/contemptibly-a-hair/), and then getting interviewed for PANK (interview = here: http://www.pankmagazine.com/pankblog/interviews/ask-the-author-joseph-michael-owens/). But that was just the tip of the proverbial iceburg…

I also jumped on the opportunity to review films for InDigest Magazine which is really kickass and should not be slept on if you are the kind of person to sleep on totally awesome stuff if you haven’t heard of it before. My first review of an independent documentary called BLANK CITY is here: http://indigestmag.com/blog/?p=7722

And most recently, I found out that my short story “We Always Trust Each Other, Except For When We Don’t” is in the running for storySouth‘s Million Writers Award (link here: http://www.storysouth.com/millionwriters/millionwritersnotable_2010.html — Scroll down to the “Gs” for Grey Sparrow Press.) where a winner is chosen from the top 100 short stories published online during a given year (i.e. for me, 2010). This same story was also nominated for Dzanc Books2011 Best of the Web Anthology. All in all, not a bad year for that story!
