Enter Joe Goosey

"Hey Matt. Funks occur. Three hangovers in four days ain't bad. I had a massive one last week that set me back about a full business week. Katie had to come find me on the side of a main road eating an omelet with my hands."

Happy to announce Joseph Goosey is coming on as poetry editor for Thieves Jargon. I've been a big fan of his work for a while now (city-kid imagery mixed with self-awareness and longing), and I think he's only going to get better moving forward. If he can identify poetry that's somewhere in the same neighborhood of interesting as the poetry he writes, we should be in good shape.

Viva le Goose!

Million Writers Award

Million Writers Award is underway again, always one of the coolest times of the year for this tiny sector of the world. I'm happy to say that Andrew S. Taylor's vagina dream That Which Dreams Does Not Sleep picked up a notable story mention and will be representing Thieves Jargon. We'll find out in a month or so if it makes the cut to the top ten. In the meantime, there were a ton of other Friends of the Jargon who got nods as well, including:

Mel Bosworth
Kevin Wilson
Kevin Spaide
Fortunato Salazar
Crispin Best
Richard Grayson
Tai Dong Huai
Greg Ames
Matt Bell
Zdravka Evtimova
Mather Schneider

Congratulations everybody!
