SLC Writes: Emergency Healing Chapbook

SLC writes, right? Right! Whether it’s our impassioned tomes of conference work, critical papers on just about any subject you can think of, or the many, many chapbooks put together over the course our writing workshops, writing is an integral part of the SLC community. So let’s see some of that writing! SLCwrites is a collaboration between the student-run publication, SLCspeaks and the independent press, Deadly Chaps (run by SLC student, Joseph A. W. Quintela) that aims to bring exciting new poetry, prose, and critical writing to publication. Every 6 weeks, an electronic chapbook will be released featuring the work of one of SLC’s students, faculty or alumni. The first in the series is Emergency Healing by Harley Arthel (’11) a series of 10 poems in the Ghazal form with a forward by Joseph A. W. Quintela. So get reading… and then get back to writing so that we can get some of your work published next!

Joseph A. W. Quintela writes. Poems. Stories. On Post-its. Walls. Envelopes. Cocktail napkins. Twitter. Anything he gets his hands on, really. His last chapbook, This is not Poetry. #poetry, was published by The Red Ceilings Press. Other work has appeared in The Collagist, ABJECTIVE, GUD, Bartleby Snopes, and Existere. As the senior editor at Deadly Chaps Press, he publishes both an annual series of chapbooks and the weekly eReview, Short, Fast, and Deadly. His work at Sarah Lawrence College revolves around integrating the disparate yet rapidly dovetailing fields of Conceptual Poetry and Eco-Criticism. As such, he is an acolyte of intra-action, hash tags, and the Oxford comma.
