Fluffy is very excited to announce that she has a chapbook out on Kind of a Hurricane Press.
You can download and read the book here.
You can read her blog, which features creative writing by Fluffy as well as commentary on political and cultural issues of the day.
She also sometimes publishes academic work here as well. In March - May 2013 I have published excerpts from "my accursed novel,"
the one I have been working on for 25 years and will probably not ever finish.
Since 1998, she has published the journal Karawane: Or, the Temporary Death of the Bruitist, a journal of experimental performance texts that grew out of the open mic scene in Minneapolis in the mid- to late-1990s. It has since expanded and has featured experimental performers from Canada, Brazil, New Zealand, and Australia to name a few. The name Karawane was taken from a sound poem by the Dadaist Hugo Ball to signal that the journal was more like Cabaret Voltaire
than a poetry slam.

Bruitism was an Italian Futurist term for the art of noise designed to elicit a reaction. We're not very good Bruitists, but we like to think we are very good poets and musicians. You be the judge. Click on the link below (artwork by Tom Cassidy).
