Call for submissions!

Heads up, writerly writers! The premiere issue of Microlandia! needs your work. I’m looking for micropoetry (haiku, e.g.), microprose (fiction and nonfiction, 250 words max), micromemoirs (same word count), and writing prompts, no later than March 18, 2012.

I can only repay in copies of this journal/zine, but let’s start here and see how things shake out.

Submit your work at aherreracg@gmail.com, and include your name and street address, so I can send your copy to you. Thanks ever so!

New Year, new…?

I’m not making resolutions.

Much like organizational systems, I find them dodgy: more the feeling that you’re doing something, which is, often, not the case. All the agendas, seminars, motivational materials on the planet cannot guarantee better work/use of time/personality.

Neither can the whole unholy host of resolutions people make for the coming year. Give up smoking? Fine. Lose 10 pounds? That’s debatable. Work on road rage?

…You get the picture.

What I do want to do, in 2012, is pretty straightforward, though.

When 2013 rolls around, I’d like to see Set List and MicroLandia in circulation; to bring local poets together for a Sunday reading affair; to find work; to get my quicksilver cat up-to-date on shots, neutering, what have you; to read at least five books a month; to cook more at home; and to pay back the kindness and generosity that I’ve received over the past year and a half.

Oh, I also look forward to laughing myself silly over all the Rapture rumors, especially when they fall through.
