these texts are an archive of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area from march 2007 - march 2015. it stands as a record of close to a decade of my life, charting the struggles i faced as an artist, daughter, and lover. messy and chaotic at times, eloquent and poetic at others, these texts are an index i am proud of. it was here in this electric box that i learned how to be honest about my experiences and the person i needed to become. it was here that i first learned the truism that words make the world and how to trust such a beautiful, rife, hard fact.

thank you for meeting me here in such tall grass.


my artist website is here.

YO! CHECK THIS OUT!!!

poet christine hamm is putting together an anthology of works (poems, writings, essays, and visual art) that is inspired by the work of sylvia plath! not her death, her WORK! this is a project that, though it seems extremely timely in terms of recent blogosphere activity, is actually long over due (in my opinion). it's so exciting to see how many people are currently fighting to usher plath's work, skill, and creative prowess in to a place of much deserved and well-earned respect and relevance. i couldn't be more pleased. totally amazing and i hope that everyone out there submits.

here are the submission guidelines

I checked her out Angela. I am a Plath follower, but I'm not sure about submitting work. Still it's great to see this opportunity here. Thanks to you and Christine.

elisabeth, isn't it wonderful! yay! i'm so happy to see someone taking the initiative to put together a project like this. i think it's so important to offer this kind of recognition for sylvia plath's work. if you know anybody who might be interested in submitting work or even just following the project, please pass along the info. i'll definitely be collecting my nerve to apply and following christine to see how things come together. it's so exciting and important and relevant! <3
