Requited is an online journal that I help edit. I’m pleased to announce that the seventh issue is now up. In the section that is my province (essays) you will find:

There is also a review, by Daniel Green, of the book We Wanted to Be Writers: Life, Love and Literature at the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, edited by Eric Olsen and Glen Schaeffer (Skyhorse Publishing, 2011).

In the rest of the issue you will find:

Requited is edited by Amanda Marbais (fiction), H.V. Crammond (poetry), Ira S. Murfin (performance texts), Fereshteh Toosi (visual art and videos), and myself (essays and reviews). We publish two issues per year. Our complete archive is accessible here, and our submission guidelines are here. If you have any further questions or comments about the journal, I would be happy to receive them.

Enjoy Issue 7!

the website “robot melon” is awesome and it’s like heroin and gay sex because it makes me feel so damn good

robot melon is a journal run by stephen daniel lewis, who may or may not be a real human being.  every time a new robot melon comes out i read the whole thing and i feel excitement about it beforehand.  like i roll my sleeves up and do a dramatic knuckle cracking thing and then say to myself, “it’s now or never chico” and then i click on the issue.  i don’t read too many journals by name rather than accidentally through someone else’s work.  but i like robot melon.  i think i would be gratified if robot melon existed for another 25 years.  and on the 25th year stephen daniel lewis just wrote a really long obscene and hateful post and was like “robot melon will never die homey”.
