Guest Post: A Résumé’s a Résumé No Matter How Small by Kiana Donae

Kiana Donae

My first job was selling shaved ice during one summer I visited my dad in Tennessee. The business was based out of a small trailer home off one of the main streets. The cash register, shaved ice machine, and all the syrups and supplies were crammed into one small bedroom of a home and we

Guest Post: There’s Fire Between Your Toes by Nathaniel Sverlow

Nathaniel Sverlow

I don’t know what I’m going to talk about. I never know what I’m going to talk about. Though, this hasn’t stopped me before. I just get going, writing down words until it finally comes, and, if it doesn’t, I go to bed and hope for better luck the next day. You see, the thing

Guest Post: Writing Through the Hard (On Becoming a Back Door Poet) by Allison Thorpe

Allison Thorpe

For some, the term “back door” may conjure images of Jim Morrison or Howlin’ Wolf singing about men running out the back door to escape getting shot by jealous husbands. But as a poet, I use the expression to mean coming in through the back door, not going out. Or, if you prefer, strolling in

Guest Post: When You Feel Too Much Yet Not At All by Caitlin Cundiff

Caitlin Cundiff

“Why are all of your poems sad?”

That was a comment I found on a poem I wrote during my undergrad. I kind of laughed, it had never really crossed my mind that they were all sad sounding. More importantly, it felt uneasy, but I could never put my finger on as to why. I

Guest Post: Panic Now, Panic Later: The Trouble with Women & Aging by Marjani Viola Hawkins

Marjani Viola Hawkins

The pressure that society has placed on women is monumental. From careers, to relationships to social lives: women are made subject to multiple informal life guidelines. At the top of the to-do list, is to develop an aversion to aging (a panic that must start before 30).

It is implied that women are not supposed

Guest Post: The Creative One by CL Bledsoe

CL Bledsoe

I always wanted to be a writer, but I was afraid I never could be because I didn’t think I was creative enough. In the fifth grade, my public school moved me into Honors classes based on standardized test scores. Suddenly, I was expected to actually study and do creative things. Up until that point,

Guest Post: On Drinking and Driving, and On Writing by nv baker

(Dedicated to Idiots, Assholes, Delvers, and Thinkers)

Topographies are important. The feel of the land. A lover’s feel, inspirited and hearthsick; caressing hands roughly over protrusions and pressing fingers into the furrows of the terra—that’s how you write, that’s the magic, the only good way about it. You grab the land, you bear

Guest Post: How the Marx Brothers Taught Me to Write Poetry by Marcella Benton

Okay, so maybe the Marx Brothers didn’t really teach me to write poetry, but these wordplay magicians did ingrain in me a love of humor and language that helped seed my desire to manipulate language myself.

I’m not the only one still finding inspiration in the Marx Brothers’ comedy— The makers of Family Guy, Mickey

Guest Post: The Guest Poet by Kevin Casey

Kevin Casey

We rarely find anyone who can say he has lived a happy life, and who, content with his life, can retire from the world like a satisfied guest. — Horace

The bathroom remodel is coming along fine, and thanks for asking. But it’s taken up most of my summer, and no small amount of money,
