hi!! my name is dani, and i’m one of those head-in-the-oven poets.
i have been writing since i learned how, and predisposed to the sad, alarming, and vomit-inducing since before i even left the womb.
i write about music for the aquarian weekly, where i even have my own rock & roll advice column, and recently some of my “fiction” (so called for the purpose of protection…) has been published on the newer york.
this year, i finally started putting my personal work OUT THERE, as opposed to just in the tumblr poetry and spilled ink tags. i’ve published zines, spoken at zine / writing workshops on college campuses, and even had a table at philly zine fest which was really awesome. i’ve also self-released two books via lulu, which has been an exciting experience as well.
my zines all read like sad girl diary entries; dealing with exes and emotional stress and pain and anger and rage. the THINGS THAT STING zine bundle is the darkest and most emotional of all of them, and the support i have gotten since releasing it has been so appreciated and life-affirming. you can order zines via my etsy here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/witchfingers
as for the books, they are available in the lulu marketplace, and you can even read the first 10 pages of each before you commit to ordering, here: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/daniatscenetrashdotcom
PILLBUG is all previously unreleased material written from the perspective of who i might be if i gave into the temptation of oblivion, in easy to swallow pill form.
THE STORIES is a collection of shorts that i’ve written between 2011 and 2013 with two stories that have never been released or published elsewhere; one being an almost obsessive account of a dream wedding and the other about being held at gunpoint after what was supposed to have been a celebratory trip to nyc. are any of them true?? not telling.
i am working on, like, three or four new projects currently for 2014, and i have a lot of big ideas and plans. any support, whether you buy my work or even just share this post, is supremely appreciated. like, i can’t even tell you how much. and it’s my job to be good with words. so. yeah.
Just go buy everything this wonderful lady is selling. You will not be disappointed.
