Pruyn publishing new poems

Peauxdunque poet Cassie Pruyn has a whole host of new poem publications forthcoming! Her poem, “Flaneur on Royal Street, New Orleans,” will be published in Blue Lyra Review’s 2016 print anthology. “The House on Tator Hill” is slated to be published by Lunch Ticket, out of Antioch University in Los Angeles, in its Summer/Fall 2015 issue. And Cassie’s current run of publications will also see “Flaneur in St. Louis Cemetery No. 1″ published in the Los Angeles Review in Fall 2015, issue 18! In addition, Cassie has a review scheduled to post at 32 Poems very soon.

Fantastic work by Cassie, appearing all over the place, so keep your eye out!

Peauxdunque in The Pinch and Tupelo Quarterly Review

Emily Choate‘s latest publication–her story, “Stump Winter, Indian Summer”–is now available in Issue 6 of the Tupelo Quarterly Review. When you read it, you won’t be disappointed.

Also, Maurice Carlos Ruffin will have a new story, “Fast Hands, Fast Feet,” coming out in the next issue of The Pinch. Keep your eyes peeled for that. As always, as Peauxdunque publishes, we’ll let you know where to go find it!

Tad and Maurice reading tonight!

Our very own Tad Bartlett and Maurice Carlos Ruffin will be reading their work, alongside Carin Chapman, at the Alvar Branch of the New Orleans Public Library, from 6 to 7:15 p.m. Should be a stellar literary experience, so come on out and hear the words.

More Peauxdunque publications, plus My Sunshine Away

Peauxdunquian Emily Choate will have her story, “Stump Winter, Indian Summer,” published in Tupelo Quarterly‘s upcoming issue! Also, Maurice Carlos Ruffin‘s “Beg Borrow Steal” will appear in the spring issue of the Kenyon Review.

Also, we’re happy to note that friend-of-Peauxdunque (and mentor to several of us through his direction of the Creative Writing Workshop at UNO and the Yokshop Writing Workshop) M.O. Walsh is celebrating the release today of his excellent debut novel, My Sunshine Away, by G.P. Putnamn’s Sons. Emily Choate reviewed My Sunshine Away recently for Chapter 16.org. It’s an excellent and fascinating novel, so buy it and read it.
