Publication: FreeFall magazine

Is there a better kind of mail day than a mail day that delivers contributor's copies? Mine for FreeFall magazine, containing my poem, "Dracula, Count of Transylvania, Does an MFA in Creative Writing," which placed third in FreeFall's annual poetry contest, arrived yesterday. Here's what the judge, GG-winning poet Richard Harrison, had to say about the piece:

"Like all great comedies, it's playing with danger; in this case, the unsettling language of gender and genre, desire and fear, blindness and vision. It's frightening because Dracula always is, even when he's an object of ridicule: a creature who seems so much more powerful than us because he has given over completely to his needs but in the end one whom we cannot wait to puncture."

The issue also contains works by my fellow winners Bruce Meyer, Hadeel and Abdel-Nabi, plus many other fine and flourishing writers. Go check it out  - on better newsstands across the country.
