In addition to THE TEAHOUSE FIRE and THE SMOKE WEEK, my dramatic work has been produced at New York's Expanded Arts Theater, while my reviews and journalism have appeared in Publishers Weekly, Kyoto Journal, and the Village Voice. In 2001, THREE LINES, ONE ROAD, a year's worth of daily haiku I exchanged with Melissa Demian, was a finalist in the National Poetry Series.
An Elaine Encomium, a guest post for Amanda Stern, curator of The Happy Endings Reading Series.
Paris Remembers, Paris Forgets, on Fathom.
The Footsore Flâneuse: Discovering One's Own Paris on Public Transportation, on Maitresse, curated by Lauren Elkin.
a few words of praise for Margot Livesey's THE FLIGHT OF GEMMA HARDY the The Miami Herald.
a few more words of praise for Penelope Fitzgerald on The Millions.
I am thirteen years into a daily haiku project called SEVENTEEN REASONS, begun and continued as correspondence with my best friend from college, anthropologist Melissa Demian. While a pen-and-postcard edition of poems from this project was recently featured at the Express+Local: NYC Aesthetics show at Queens College Art Center, you can read them if you look for me on Facebook.
Several of my daily haiku appear in IN PIECES: AN ANTHOLOGY OF FRAGMENTARY WRITING, published by lovely Seattle-based Impassio Press.
Nine (other) poems from SEVENTEEN REASONS appear in ENHAIKLOPEDIA, published in Kyoto by the Hailstone Haiku Circle, edited by Basho translator Stephen Gill. They're only sold in Japan, but I did bring a few copies back with me. Though slim, ENHAIKLOPEDIA features haiku and haibun (prose built around haiku) by fifty poets, including beautiful work by Tito, Sally McLaren, and Keiko Yurugi. If you're interested, please send me a check for $15.
One of my favorite magazines ran two short pieces of mine in 2005: Hagi Night, a personal essay, and The Setsubun Girl a very short story (an outtake, in fact, from THE TEAHOUSE FIRE) in volumes 61 and 62 respectively. They've also run my reviews of Amy Uyematsu's STONE BOW PRAYER and Chin Music Press's KUHAKU, edited by Bruce Rutledge.
