Metonym Literary Journal, a publication from the undergraduate English students of William Jessup University, has published its ninth volume, full of gorgeous poems, prose and full-color artwork. I'm truly honored to be featured in this beautiful collection, with a creative nonfiction piece titled Numb to the Cold." But back to the journal itself, the students have done a remarkable job with it. Honestly. Awesome work!

Happy one-year anniversary to According to Their Kinds. 
In the past year, it's found its way from Maryland to California, and plenty of places in between. All my love to the dazzling readers who made it happen.
