A Hearty Congratulations

Incredible writer and Attic alumna, Valerie Egan, has just published her first chapbook A History of Running from Dancing Girl Press & Studio. An excerpt of her work below:

The Mad Sailor

root deep & remember:

snot spleen the trembling thunderclouds puke-green tile kitty litter sucking on thumbs Costco suburbs and it was always raining

except in California

where skin broke, bled, burned itself open 
during its mad dash to Disneyland

I hurtled through the door
before the car had stopped

Scar tissued knees, eyes red
They should have tied me to the ship

We love hearing about the success of our alumni. Valerie took a workshop from Ashley Toliver a few years ago; congrats again on the pub!
