Eeeek! Rise of the Trust Fall gets one of it's first reviews in one of my favorite mags of all time - the delicious and moxy-filled BUST. View the awesomeness here. They call my book "a linguistic orgasm." What a sweet August treat. Thank you to Amber Tamblyn for getting the girly poetry to the girls, and thank you BUST for your fearless community building and good looks.
In The Press
Rise of the Trust Fall received the huge honor of being reviewed in The Chicago Sun-Times poetry roundup. The best part: "With detail to craft combined with her already brutal, and important, revelations, Nettifee’s writing and Write Bloody Press books are a welcome, important vehicle in poetry for some time to come." What sweethearts. And to top it off, it got picked next to Robert Pinksy and Billy Collins' new books, those two guys who were, ahem, poet laureates. Geez. Thank you SO much to Mark Eleveld. Ugh. Seriously.
Sometime in January, Jon Sands and I had a conversation about writing and zombies and life for an ongoing series he puts out in Union Station Magazine. If you like writing, and you like when writers get dissected, (or if you just want to see me squirm under the scalpel), you might really enjoy this transcription.
The Nervouse Breakdown is really well known at this point for it's amazing self-interviews with poets and writers. You really won't regret taking the time to explore their archive. I'm not even going to bother telling you which ones are my favorites, you just need to discover them. You can read the TNB profile on me, self-interview and a poem by visiting this link:
Mindy joins DJ Matt as a special guest on Writer's Block to discuss The Rise of the Trust Fall, and it features numerous performances of her poetry from her last tour (specifically, from her showcases at the Bowery Poetry Club and the louderArts Project slam at Club 13, both in Manhattan).
An interview with Mindy on the amazing blog of Courtney Nichols: Fruit Fly Life. Courtney's definition of a fruit fly is worth visiting the site for alone. It ends with, "A fruit fly knows the world, loves the world, but expects more of the world." You said it sister.
