Long one of our favorite poets (and now a member of Peauxdunque!), Kelly Harris will be featured by Larchmere Arts and the Nia Coffeehouse Poetry Series in Cleveland next Tuesday night, November 22. She will reunite with Vince Robinson & The Jazz Poets for a special show starting at 8 p.m.
Last week, LitHub ran a pre-election essay it commissioned from Maurice Carlos Ruffin, an incredible meditation on race, language, privilege, and political discourse, “Talking in New Orleans in the Age of Trump.”
Tad Bartlett learned over the weekend that his short story, “Anti-Heroically Yours,” will be published in January by Bird’s Thumb. He also found out that his non-fiction piece, “My Time With You,” which was published in June by Chautauqua Literary Journal, has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. This is Tad’s second Pushcart nomination (his non-fiction piece, “Head Space,” was nominated last year by The Writing Disorder).
As usual, Peauxdunque’s been a busy place, with plenty new publication and competition news.
Some excellent upcoming publications are in line already for 2016!
Check out our Facebook page for links to Peauxdunque work as it appears.
In addition, Peauxdunque again placed highly in the various categories of the 2015 William Faulkner-William Wisdom writing competition, put on by the Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society in conjunction with its annual Words & Music Conference. Tad Bartlett and J.Ed. Marston‘s collaborative novel, The Truth Project, made the Short List for the prize in the novel category; Tad‘s novella, “Marchers’ Season,” was on the Short List for the prize in the novella category; J.Ed.‘s stories, “Search for Missing Girl Continues” and “Saying No,” were a Finalist and a Semi-Finalist, respectively, in the short story category; and J.Ed.‘s poem, “Ulysses on the Stoop,” was a Finalist in the poetry category.
Look out for news regarding Peauxdunquian readings during this year’s Words & Music Conference, October 29-November 1.
