I’m not gonna lie, my inspire meter has been resting on “E” for the past few months. My dog brain has been in need of dem bones. Well, last week, I found a big bag of ’em in the form of the distinctly venerable (yet delightfully irreverent) journal, Atticus Review. I’m happy and excited to tell y’all that I’ll be the new Editor-in-Chief of that exceptional wardrobe of words, and it’s got my inspire meter back on the big “F” where it belongs. (‪#‎notaeuphemism‬)


I can’t tell you how excited I am to get started. And I owe a huge thanks to Dan Cafaro, the Publisher of Atticus Review, for this opportunity and for bringing me on board! We’ve knocked around some cool new ideas for moving forward, but mostly it’s going to be a lot more of giving you stuff to think about, stuff to inspire, stuff to move you, to make you want to get up and do your own doings.

For now, I hope you’ll like our Facebook page ( and/or follow one of the new social media accounts I’ve set up:

And in honor of the Atticus Review’s name, I thought I’d share this quotation from To Kill a Mockingbird. I feel like it’s a great message for writers: Sometimes you feel like you’re licked before you even begin, right? Well, BEGIN ANYWAY.

Begin Anyway
