Welcome to Joel Peckham.com

There is a great deal going on in our lives right now–too much to update in a quick post. But Rach, Darius, and I are all headed up to the AWP in Chicago for three days of reconnecting with old friends and drowning in creative passive aggression. Should be wonderful.

I plan to have many updates regarding new and forthcoming publications, but for now, suffice it to say that we are all well and happy and the future feels as bright as ever.

Peace and Love,


Lookout for new poems appearing in current and future issues of Prairie Schooner, Grist, and Jelly Bucket.

An essay, “Please Take What You Want” is also in the current issue of Jelly Bucket.

And another article on the use of non-linear and disjunctive prose style in Creative Nonfiction is out at Quarter After Eight.
