Two Fictions in Hobart

These two pieces of mine went up on Hobart last March. I named them "Booby is from Bobo", and "YOU ARE NOT BETTER THAN THE DEAD." I'm super happy the editors picked them.

I made a one minute book trailer

Amazing, happy news for one of the rhinos who inspired Land Beast

I came across this post on Facebook:

Some of you may remember Thandi, the courageous rhino who survived a poaching attack back in 2012.

Now she’s making headlines with good news: she’s given birth to a baby calf named Thembi—meaning “hope” in isiXhosa. http://bit.ly/1M5N3K4

How incredible! This makes me so happy!

Matt Bell Featured Land Beast on an Eco-Fabulism Panel at AWP

I couldn't be more flattered that Matt pieced my piece as one of the examples in his Fabulist Fiction for a Hot Planet! panel. 

Here's an interview in the Sonora Review that mentions his development of the panel. The interviewer mentions my story. 

Matt has since used this talk twice.
