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.

TheMaidenInBlack 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.

Double Chapbook Cover Reveal!

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 29, 2016, 1:36 PM
FROM THE DESK OF E. KRISTIN ANDERSON:

Hello readers! I'm so excited to finally be able to share some beautiful art with you. I have several books headed your way this spring (I'm exhausted and excited and exhausted and exhilarated and okay mostly freaking out with AWESOME about this).

First, some housekeeping: I'll be at AWP this week, so if you're at the conference, be sure to find me! I have an off-site reading (free and open to the public) at Ham & Eggs Tavern on Thursday at 5pm, and at 4:30 on Saturday I have a panel on bringing poetry to the YOUTHS with Lynn Melnick, Camille Rankine, Kerri Webster, and Sheila McMullin. Come see us! I'll also have lots of fun and fabulous swag to distribute and HYSTERIA BINGO cards! So find me (at readings, panels, at the book fair), play BINGO, get stuff, buy my books, have fun, YAY!

Onto the art.

So. Coming very soon are my next two found poetry chapbooks, FIRE IN THE SKY with Grey Book Press and ACOUSTIC BATTERY LIFE with ELJ Publications. The art is here. I've been sitting on it, admiring it, sneaking peeks to people on my phone. But I finally get to share it with you! Here you go:

Grey Book Press, 2016
Grey Book Press, 2016

This piece was done by author and artist Emily Capettini. I had my heart set on needlepoint and I'm so glad that I not only knew Emily, but that she was willing to do a custom piece for us for this book. FIRE IN THE SKY consists of three long poems in parts created by first scrambling and then erasuring Lana Del Rey lyrics, so I feel like the fireworks really compliment both the source material and the title of the book. I'm so excited about this. It will be out in early April.

And then, soon after, you'll get this:

ELJ Publications, 2016.
ELJ Publications, 2016.

This cover was done by Jodie Wynne (jowyn), and is actually a crop of a piece of hers that I've admired of hers for years now. I'm so excited to be able to have it on the cover of my book of poems from Found Poetry Review's Oulipost project. Acoustic Battery Life will be out later this spring from ELJ. I really hope you enjoy it.

If you love these covers as much as I do, I hope you'll leave a comment to let the artists know.

And...I'll see you at AWP!

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 live in Austin, TX and 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 four chapbooks of poetry out: A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY (Finishing Line Press), A GUIDE FOR THE PRACTICAL ABDUCTEE (Red Bird Chapbooks) PRAY, PRAY, PRAY: Poems I wrote to Prince in the middle of the night (Porkbelly Press), and 17 DAYS (ELJ Publications) and I have three chaps forthcoming in 2016. I'm a poetry editor at Found Poetry Review and I help out at NonBinary Review and Lucky Bastard Press. I blog at EKristinAnderson.com about books and writing and stuff. If you're looking for editorial or mentoring services, 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.

You have a very distinct style and I can't put my finger on exactly what it is but it is beautiful to say the least. I wish you even more success in your writing career.
