This week, ORK would like to recognize Matt Curry, art editor in 2000 and regular ORK contributor since. Matt’s cover is perhaps the most popular ORK cover to date, judging from the paucity of copies we have in our office! In the intervening years, Matt has been steadily producing both art and writing; his Amazon.com author’s page boasts seven (!!) titles, including “The Gasoline Diet” and “Starlight Desperado,” both pictured here. You can find more of Matt’s artwork at cafepress.com/oldkingcurry, or you can visit his blog, The Chia Pet Circus, as well as facebook.com/curryart. Oh, and today happens to be Matt’s birthday, so Happy Birthday, Matt!

ORK would like to recognize Jasmine Gugat (formerly Williams), who created our 40th Anniversary ORK cover in 2011. For the last three years, Jasmine taught K-5th grades at the Crow Village Sam School in Chuathbaluk, Alaska, a town of approximately 126 people. She says it was rough living off the road system and only being able to travel by boat or plane, but her time living alongside the Yupik and Athabaskan people allowed her to study their cultural arts and learn their ways of sewing, dancing, communication, and cooking. She describes her time in Alaska as the ultimate experience as both a teacher and artist--as close to the "one room school house" and "last frontier" as one could get in the U.S. Jasmine recently returned to the lower 48, along with her husband Steven and newborn daughter Autumn Elise. We look forward to seeing what she’s been working on since her time with ORK.

This week’s ORK shout-out goes to Matthew Sunrich, ORK literary editor in 1994 and 2003 and frequent ORK contributor. His new book of short stories, Someone Shot the Hip Young Conductor, is now available on Amazon! Matt is a master of the unexpected image, having given us such lines as “Awaking at odd hours, I found myself focusing on the ceiling fan’s asterisk, wondering where the footnote was” (“Carpet”) and “Medusa’s horrible visage and serpentine locks are obscured by some errant gravy from tonight’s Salisbury steak” (“Caravaggio”). When he’s not writing or working, he likes to pit various species of undead against each other. We look forward to curling up with his new book, preferably under a full moon.

Thanks for including my work in the April 2019 issue...Just got my copies......
W. F. Lantry’s poetry collections are The Terraced Mountain (Little Red Tree Publishing, LLC 2015), The Structure of Desire (Little Red Tree 2012), winner of a 2013 Nautilus Award in Poetry, and The Language of Birds (Finishing Line Press 2011). He received his PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Houston. His honors include the National Hackney Literary Award in Poetry, the Patricia Goedicke Prize, the Crucible Editors' Prize, the Lindberg Foundation International Poetry for Peace Prize (Israel), the Potomac Review Prize, and the Old Red Kimono Prize. His work appears widely online and in print. He currently works in Washington, DC. and is an associate fiction editor at JMWW. Lantry contributed two poems to the latest volume of Synesthesia, "Self-control" and "Widdershins." The following is an excerpt from the former: But mostly I must find a cleft and lean away from the cliff face, moving between solidity of stone and open air— the line dividing them hard to define exactly when the torn sky's darkening as hollow forms fracture and recombine, until those clouds, breaking, restore the glare and we refind our passage overhead. http://synaesthesticnotes.blogspot.com/2016/08/w-f-lantry-from-volume-42.html
