kirstyrebecca asked: I've just ordered What The Night Demands after watching a few of your poems on YouTube. It was a challenge to find somewhere in little old England to order it from, but the task is now complete and I'm way too excited for it to be delivered.

In which nice things are said about my work that make me incredibly bashful.
That moment of absolute horror when you realize that you’ve been listening, for two years now, to one of your absolute favorite albums with the tracks IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER NOT THE INTENDED ALBUM ORDER. I could throw up, I’ve never hated the alphabet more.

I just read someone say that being told they have privilege is “as offensive as any slur” OH BOY.
If a fascist regime kills a 15 year old girl for wanting to learn how to read,...– Jeanette Winterson. Got to see this incredible writer read and drop brilliance-bombs at AWP this weekend, on International Women’s Day no less! Holy. (via meganfalley)

Smith College! Tomorrow!
Hey Friends, If you’re anywhere near Smith College, I’d love to see you at my show tomorrow. It’s the last stop of my first ever tour, and I’m really looking forward to it! The show is at 8pm in the Neilson Library Browsing Room. Please come! It’ll be poems and stories and awkward smiles and loads of fun!
I know it's some big football day BUT
Wouldn’t you rather come watch me read poems? Good news: if you’re near Worcester, MA, YOU CAN! I’ll be featuring tonight at the Poet’s Asylum (doors at 6:30, show at 7) at the WCUW Front Room, 910 Main Street. I promise to reference my inability to play or understand sports.
www.mileswalser.com is a total thing now. Check it out!
