The return of Hunkamooga
My column "Hunkamooga," which ran in Word: Toronto's Literary Calendar for about four years, is back, this time in sub-Terrain, a triquarterly out of Vancouver. Not thrilled with the frequency, but if I keep writing the column right on deadline, or slightly after, it'll be fairly fresh. Plus, I'm actually getting paid, which is nice.
My sub-Terrain piece "I Hate Poetry," which appeared a couple issues ago, was to have been the first new Hunkamooga column, but they forgot to include "Hunkamooga" on the page. The new column is about novel-writing. Sort of. It's the first piece of writing I've completed in well over a month.
The Hunkamooga columns for Word — at least, revised and expanded versions — made up the bulk of my book Confessions of a Small Press Racketeer, which was published by Anvil, the press that shares an owner/editor with sub-Terrain. I think I've gotten far more response for that book than I have for my poetry or fiction books cumulatively.
Over and out.
