A dewclaw is a vestigial digit of the foot of many mammals, birds, and reptiles.

A small magazine that I hope to publish in 2009 will be named “Dewclaw.” Fiction, poetry, photographs and illustrations (of vestigial growths, real or imagined), other objects composed of text and possibly fabric.

If you’d like to submit something, email me and we’ll talk.


Over on the right, I’ve added links to a few favorite online writings. I will probably add to this list while subtracting from it, to control its size somewhat.


Also, thank you, Unsaid Magazine and Harp & Altar, for the Pushcart nominations. Both of these magazines are definite events in the wake of my 2008; I found a bunch of writers who are new to me through Unsaid’s pages, which I wish there were more of. Same with Harp & Altar, which also led me to its fiction editor’s book Fog & Car, very good writing that made me want to do more, find further.
