Yes, I came out yesterday, Friday, November 18, with Musa Publishing, & you can click above to find out more about me. My Rhoda has been holding this space warm since September. That means lots of Evo treats!

I'd like to hear from you, the readers. Lee Herrick, poet and cc English teacher, said about my story:

"Chella Courington's prose is stunning and difficult to turn away from.  From the very first to the last, this work is breathtaking and surprising.  I cherish moments where I think, "How did the writer do that?" and we are lucky if it happens occasionally--but with this writer's command and vision, I was taken aback by the "minor revelations" in nearly every piece. This book is full of beautiful gifts, wise and accurate.  I have not read many (if any) books like this---the fascinating blending of social media and its effects, the academic realities, aspirations and despair, the speculation and desire throughout the collection. This is an important voice in American short prose, contemporary and confident, beautiful and brilliant."

---Lee Herrick, author of This Many Miles from Desire

Please feel free to comment & offer suggestions. Does my story ring true for the many adjuncts out there? the aspiring poets? the reader coping with life? I want to hear your comments and anecdotes. Thanks so much for the time & hope to meet via the page.
