Anna has tagged me for the ten-things-about-me post!
1. I’m editor of a campus literary magazine in the coming semester. We publish autobiographical pieces—creative nonfiction, photography, and line drawings.
2. I write every day—prose, poetry, journal entries, quotes, repetitions.
3. I’m having a poem published (for the first time in a “real” literary magazine!) in Birdfeast’s inaugural issue this month.
4. My boyfriend and I have been together for over three years, since senior year in high school; we liked one another for years before that, and have known each other since sixth grade. Sometimes I find it hard to believe—how lucky I’ve been.
5. I was born on a farm and lived there until I was 16.
6. I cut all my hair off in November and it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself.
7. I’ve been fascinated with whales—their intelligence, playfulness, sociability, idiosyncrasy—since I went on my first whale watch in Nova Scotia at age 8. My family and I have been every year since.
8. My favorite place/time to inhabit is a clean kitchen table or quiet coffee shop in the very early morning.
9. My favorite things released in 2011 were:
Albums: Laura Marling, A Creature I Don’t Know; Feist, Metals
Books: Lidia Yuknavitch, The Chronology of Water; Miranda July, It Chooses You; Misha Glouberman with Sheila Heti, The Chairs Are Where the People Go; Ryan Call, The Weather Stations; Edith Pearlman, Binocular Vision; Bruce Smith, Devotions; Julie Otsuka, The Buddha in the Attic
10. Dreams: be a professor (hopefully teaching both poetry workshops and modern English poetry from Whitman onward), live completely alone in a new city, work for a small publishing house, write every day for the rest of my life.
