~ Elee Kraljii Gardiner chatted with us about her latest collection Trauma Head (Anvil Press), her fave writerly moments, and productive writing spaces: "I work well in waiting rooms and hospitals—the stasis of waiting amidst a hum of activity that does not require my attention or social interaction suits me!"

~ Our #fridayreads was Tyler Hellard's  breakaway debut novel Searching for Terry Punchout (Invisible Publishing) a combo of King Leary, Garden State, and Born Into It "that will resonate with any reader who has wondered if you can ever really go home again."
