After having my work published in Dialogist, Heather Cox (the featured poet in that issue) contacted me with interest in my work. Come to find, she works for a small publishing company Tree Light Books. She asked to use Jerry Springer Jesus as a cover for their latest chapbook with writings by Rachel Levy. You can purchase a copy and check out what the pressing looks like HERE. I am so thankful for such a random encounter and opportunity.
In other news, I just returned from the national SPE conference in Chicago. I had the great chance to see old friends, make some new ones and attend a few good lectures. I think my favorite lecture at the event was by Dana Fritz. Viewing her work, and hearing her discuss her concepts has led to some sparks of ideas in my mind.
I also had the chance to see one of my biggest inspirations, Olivia Parker, talk as well. Although she did not discuss much of the concept behind her work, she did talk about her process and the transition she's been making from analog to digital.
Henry Horenstein was the other highlight of my conference experience. Sadly, he did not give a lecture but he did sit down for a book signing. Luckily, I was able to get a copy of Anamalia and have that signed.
The photo overload doesn't stop here, tomorrow I'll be going to the Milwaukee Art Museum in great company to check out a Nan Goldin exhibition.
