E. Kristin Anderson will write your bio.
You know that part where a magazine asks you for a "short bio?" Let me do that for you. $15 gets you something around 50 words of exquisite biographical information.

Examples:

doodlerTM lives in the snowy woodlands of upstate New York. She has a pet Yeti. You're jealous.

neurotype spends her time in and outside of Chicago, where she can be found writing science fiction, entertaining hookers, and writing science fiction about hookers. Her work has been seen in magazines.

HtBlack is a goddamn classy Italian cyclops with at least one dog. When not wrestling sewer rats, she writes sonnets on her balcony.

tiganusi has never ever rolled a cigarette using a page from a bible. His work has appeared in at least three magazines that you've heard of and his photographs have given at least one old man a stroke.

April is the cruelest (AND FUNNEST) month!

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 30, 2015, 9:32 PM
FROM THE DESK OF E. KRISTIN ANDERSON:

Hello, readers!

March is ending, and, for me, that means a month of absolutely delightful chaos is about to ensue. As a poet, I look forward to April every year. April is National Poetry Month, which means I'm celebrating in numerous ways! And, this year, it's busier than ever!

Prince Sunglass Look

Starting April 1, there will be a pretty incredible line-up of poets (and poetry lovers) guest-posting on my author blog while I go off to conquer other tasks. I hope you enjoy their posts. Because, man, there are some exciting people with exciting ideas that will be hanging out there over the course of the month.

Website-Badge-2

Meanwhile, I'll be over at PoMoSco.com, posting new poems every day based on prompts provided by Found Poetry Review. This year, they are celebrating national poetry month with a scouting-esque experience. Each challenge represents a badge that we can "win" for completing the challenge. There are 30 badges, and you know I want to collect them all! We got to start ahead, which is great, since I'll be traveling this month. I've already enjoyed working with source texts like DEENIE by Judy Blume, a Buffy Season 8 graphic novel, and an X-Files transcript!

So, the traveling? Yep, I'll be at AWP in Minneapolis! (HOME OF PRINCE!!!) where I'll be reading, signing, and taking in all of the awesome lectures and panels that I can. I'll also be exploring the city with PoMoSco scouts, on a special FPR mission to earn some extra badges, which will culminate in a reading on Friday, April 10. So, you know, don't miss that. (More details on my AWP schedule can be found on my Events page.) I'm so excited to meet so many of my new poetry friends and, finally, the team at Red Bird Chapbooks, who are based in St. Paul.

And I'm making some "Raspberry Beret" hair clips to go with bookmarks announcing my new chapbook forthcoming with Porkbelly Press. Gotta take advantage of the Minneapolis locale! Here's the supplies I have so far. We're ALMOST ready to get started:

Crafty time!

And then there's TLA. I'll be signing on Wednesday in the author area and also at a date/time TBA at the Overlooked Books booth. So keep an eye on that schedule if you want to come see me and get some books signed! I always love TLA -- visiting with educators, librarians, readers and authors, chatting with publicists about awesome new books, and learning more about the industry.

Toward the end of the month, things should be winding down. But there will be daily guest posts at my blog, daily poems at PoMoSco.com, and, you know, MAYBE a reading from Texas PoMoSco participants. I'll let y'all know if this happens via Twitter & Facebook. Hoping we can pull this off, because, you know, how awesome would that be?

So, that's my April. What are you doing to celebrate National Poetry Month?

PinkyMcCoversong's Profile Picture

E. Kristin Anderson
Artist | Professional | Literature
United States
My name is Emily, but if you're looking for my published work, you should Google E. Kristin Anderson. (Ask me and I'll tell you the why-I-need-a-pen-name story.) I write poetry (for everyone) and fiction (for young adults and children) and nonfiction (sometimes). I'm the co-editor of the nonfiction anthology DEAR TEEN ME (Zest Books, 2012) based on the website DearTeenMe.com, where authors write letters to their teen selves. I have two poetry chapbooks out: A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY (Finishing Line Press) and A GUIDE FOR THE PRACTICAL ABDUCTEE (Red Bird Chapbooks). I'm an online editor at Hunger Mountain and a contributing editor at Found Poetry Review . I blog at EKristinAnderson.com about books and writing and my bizarro life here in Austin, TX. If you're looking for editorial or mentoring servies, I'm a member of Yellow Bird Editors, a group of industry professionals offering these and other services for professionals as well as beginning writers and teens.

I grew up in Westbrook, Maine and went to Connecticut College in the beautiful New London, CT, and have a fancy-sounding degree in Classics. Once upon a time I lived in Brooklyn and worked at The New Yorker magazine and sometimes I have dreams that I have to go into the office and make the magazine and can't remember how. ATX, though? It's a great home. I like to take photographs with toy and vintage cameras. Don't listen to anyone who says watching television will rot your brain -- some of my best ideas have come from TV.

Scroll down for a list of upcoming events and information on my editorial and coaching services.

Deftly
This is a remix poem written during AWP 2015 for the Found Poetry Review's PoMoSco JamPoRee. We had to use specific prompts in which we interacted with the city of Minneapolis and the AWP conference, and this culminated in a reading earlier this evening.

For this poem, we had to collect pamphlets, bookmarks, stickers -- anything being handed out -- at the bookfair and use the text on these items to create a poem.

This is a found poem. Source texts are materials picked up at AWP 2015 in Minneapolis, including: Guidelines for the 2015 Red Hen Press Awards, an invitation to a Red Hen Press party, a Red Bird Chapbooks bookmark and a Red Bird Chapbooks business card, a postcard advertising The Ambassador’s Wife by Jennifer Steil, a Puerto del Sol bookmark, a temporary tattoo from Zoetic Press, a Paper Nautlius business card, postcards advertising competitions and raffles from A Room of Her Own (AROHO), and a Write Bloody bumper sticker.

I'll come to where you are
This is a found poem. I created this as part of the Found Poetry Review's AWP JamPoRee challenge, in which we had to interact with the conference and the city of Minneapolis to create found poetry for a reading that took place earlier tonight.

For this prompt, we had to go to a panel discussion and use quotes from the session to create a new poem.

Source material: Quotes from “The Rise of the Chapbook” panel at AWP 2015 in Minneapolis, including quotes from audience questions, the moderator (Rebecca Hazelton), and speakers (Jamaal May, Jeffrey Levine, Kit Frick, and Katherine Sullivan)

Bang It Out Anthem
This is a remix poem written during AWP 2015 for the Found Poetry Review's PoMoSco JamPoRee. We had to use specific prompts in which we interacted with the city of Minneapolis and the AWP conference, and this culminated in a reading earlier this evening.

For this poem, we had to go to the public library, ask the librarian to recommend a book (on a specific topic, to help them out). And then we'd use the recommended book to write a remix poem. We also had to somehow incorporate the numbers in the zip code of the library: 55401.
