Big Augury Books News

I'm very excited to announce that Augury Books, the independent press that I cofounded in 2010 and run, has become an official imprint of Brooklyn Arts Press. We're very excited to join BAP's family and under their auspices, we will continue to publish two new Augury Books titles each year, beginning in fall of 2018 with the second collection from poet Alicia Jo Rabins and a manuscript we will select from our January Open Reading Period. Our editorial board remains the same and all correspondence for Augury can be sent to augurybooks@gmail.com.  

Elizabeth Kostova Foundation Creative Nonfiction Fellowship

I am thrilled to have been selected as one of five Creative Nonfiction Fellows for the Elizabeth Kostova Foundation's 10th Annual (and First Creative Nonfiction edition) Sozopol Seminars in Bulgaria. It's an honor to join my fellow fellows Akwaeke Emezi, Chris Fenton, Jaclyn Moyer and Evan James for our workshop taught by Philip Graham in Sozopol, Bulgaria, and to participate in the CapitaLiterature Festival in Sofia afterwards.
