Pulling Up Stakes and Heading…East?

I want this blog to remain largely focused on queer writers, their work and the writing life.  I also have not wanted to post my own poems or go on about my personal life.  I find my day to day life tedious at best.  I don’t think any other person would seek out this blog just to read about me feeding the cat or how many times a week I pick up socks off the bedroom floor.

That said, there has been a lot of changes taking place this spring.  In just a few months I will be moving to the state of Idaho.  I am going to attend the University of Idaho in Moscow and attempt to earn an MFA in poetry.

For a number of reasons, I won’t go into great detail here about moving or the nitty-gritty of how to I am getting from Bellingham to Moscow (which locals swear rhymes with Costco).  If I thought I was in the boonies now, I better hang onto my hat, because the closest gay bar is now ninety miles away.  I will continue to blog about the usual topics, but if you catch me typing about poetry workshops and writing classes, you will now know that I am talking about graduate school.
