* Pretty Owl Poetry/issue 5 *

Just a quick post to announce the release of the latest issue of Pretty Owl Poetry which includes my flash fiction pieces “Spinster” and “Oceans.” The issue also includes fine writing from Jill Khoury, Howie Good and fellow UC poet and friend Les Kay as well as artwork by Heather Simon.

Check out the issue here.

I’m especially excited for this publication. These two pieces are part of “Reasons (not) to Dance,” a flash fiction/prose poem chapbook forthcoming from FutureCycle Press. The project explores ideas of risks as played out in short prose pieces that range from the fabulistic to the memoiristic. My guides in writing these come from the Latin American microcuento tradition, writers such as Augusto Monterroso and Julio Cortazar.

Thank you to Kelly Andrews, Gordon Buchan, and B. Rose Huber for putting together a great issue!

See you Friday!

Best,

Jose
