I bought myself for myself: nicolesteinberg.com.
I thought it might be nice to have a space where I can post new work and stuff that I find inspiring and to talk about writing, if and when the mood strikes me. I’ll still be using this blog for my usual barrage of Chris Evans gifs, among other things. So, if you are a srs writer and you are turned off by endless photos of corgis and John Cho, you can follow my other site instead (also managed through tumblr). Or you can follow BOTH and get the full scope of my brain, which may or may not be advisable.

This is radical. Bay Area press Birds of Lace gets big-upped on ModCloth today.
Last month, Nicole Steinberg was one of our four featured readers at the Moonshot Magazine Holiday Party. One of the series she read from was her Getting Lucky series, where she pulled copy from previous issues of Lucky Magazine to put together provocative and sometimes hilarious poems. You can read them here and listen to Steinberg read them aloud.
This crazy person also just tweeted at Lucky Magazine about all this and ahhhhhh. I’m going to have to start posting stuff here other than corgis and Chris Pine.
Thank you again, Rohin & Moonshot. All the love.
