Hello there, world!
Look here: a blog post!
It’s been a wild few months since I’ve updated the blog, but I wanted to update my readers on a few writing endeavors that they can read, and/ or look forward to.
First, I’ll have an article in the Summer edition of Pegasus Magazine, the lush and colorful and over-sized publication of UCF Marketing. I’ve interviewed and profiled comic writer Robert Venditti (UCF ’01), and because the magazine is awesome (a real coffee table item) we wrote the piece as a four-page comic. It’ll be beautiful, and very different than most interviews and profiles you’re used to reading. If you’re a UCF alum, you’ll likely see it in your mail at the start of July.
Speaking of comics: this past Spring, my Rhetoric of Comics class was profiled in the Orlando Sentinel. Follow the link here for an article and video. The print version ran on the front page of the newspaper!
My comic “Mark’s Days” was also published at Knee-Jerk Magazine. And my comic adaptation of Lavinia Ludlow’s Single Stroke Seven is here. I’ve also got a few other comics circulating out in the submission nethersphere, so hopefully positive updates soon.
And if you’ve ever read/ enjoyed my empathetic fiction that takes on the POV of disposable victims in B-movies, here’s a new entry in that series: “A Zombie in Dawn of the Dead Transitions From an All-Juice Diet,” in JMWW. I should also have another short fiction published in print, too, from The Meadow.
And I don’t think I shared it last summer, mostly because I was shell-shocked by the Pulse shooting here in Orlando, but I wrote a very long interview/ essay about writing Orlando/ Florida fiction, and writing about fraternities, and writing about fatherhood, at Prick of the Spindle. It feels a bit like a manifesto, and you can read it here.
Bye for now! I’m off to enjoy my air conditioning! #summerinflorida
