Jason Ockert Interview

cfburch4:

I’ve been reading Ockert’s latest collection, “Neighbors of Nothing,” this summer, and it’s amazing. Check out Pat Siebel’s interview with Ockert in Hobart. Siebel is editor of Tempo, the student features mag at Coastal Carolina University.

repeat from Colin Burch

There’s actually no such thing as an adult. That word is a placeholder. We never grow up. We’re not supposed to. We’re born and that’s it. We get bigger. We live through great storms. We get soaked to the bone. We realize we’re waterproof. We strive for calm. We discover what makes us feel good. We do those things over and over.

Alt Lit Journals by Alexa Rank

altlitpress:

I’ve been looking at all these summer lists for somewhere to submit my work. And being such a nerd I thought I’d compile a ranking of them by Alexa rating so that I could submit where the most people could see my work. Just thought I’d share the results with people:

1. Hobart - 2,741,597

2.

We’re #1! Alt lit??

"Chicken Baby" by Caleb Curtiss | Sundog Lit

We are redeemed on this day
of days: the emptied

beer cans we arrange just so
in the imperfect vessel

of our recycling bin, the old
batteries we tell ourselves

we have not
thrown away…

Hobart Poetry Editor, Caleb Curtiss, straight killin’ it in the new issue of Sundog Lit.

When the mortar exploded in the sky and the bottle rockets whizzed all around us, I stared and watched, smiling. We’d all dressed up in our tuxes for the wedding the next day, because we had them and because it seemed funny and official and how many times in our lives did we get to wear tuxes together? The whole thing looked and felt like the best celebration I could have imagined.

—“Fire in the Sky” (from BACKSWING)

i made this last year but don’t think i ever uploaded it. gonna try to make some more this weekend

just a little reminder that I’m doing most of my tumbling (reblogging buffalo & antlers & wagoneers & the like, and also almost endlessly and obnoxiously about my book (available now!)) over at my personal tumblr, w/ this one mostly (but hopefully not too boringly?) devoted to Hobart-centric reblogs & stuff.

thx.
