I'm so excited about this. Two Wrights, No wrongs!


SIR! is coming along swimmingly. Ryan Walsh of Hallelujah the Hills has designed an incredible cover. He also contributed some writing which floored me with its mythology. It seems this man can do no wrong.


This has been a hell of a busy week. Four readings, four miles jogged, four rice cakes with peanut butter eaten. My parents are in Ireland, tripping. My brother is training for a triathlon in high rise gym in Denver. Emily is dwelling in my childhood home with my dog sleeping by her feet. I am in a fog in front of a computer lighthouse.

Kathleen Rooney was profiled by Jonathan Messinger in Time Out Chicago about Rose Metal Press.

Bill Knott stirs up some shit here. The this guy said something which lead to some good comments by the Knott. The Knott is a legendary opinionator and always fun to read.
