Flint (Critical Studies 09) writes, “I’m living and writing in Portland, Ore., where I am staying as safe, healthy, and sane as possible during this batshit bonkers time. I am staying connected with my LA-based writing community and am grateful for the connection they provide. I have a short story coming out in Erato, an anthology of flash erotica, later this month. And in November, my poem cycle about the connections between the Pulse Nightclub massacre and caring for my homophobic stepfather at the end of his life will be featured online in CutBank Literary Journal – All Accounts and Mixture. And if anyone is in need of a bit of bad dating levity, here is the link to ‘Avery,’ a saucy (and true!) little story published in the UK’s Erotic Review. https://ermagazine.com/avery/ I wish the CalArts community peace and fortitude and the drive to continue to ‘make art in the face of fuck,’ as Lidia Yuknavitch challenges and cheerleads us all to do.
