Connie swept bird poo beneath his post, dumped it in the trash, and shook her head. “It’s Peter Piper, you silly goose.”

“Hoooonk! I’m a goose!”

“No, you’re a Mynah bird.”

“Raaaaawk! Mynah place or yours, sexy thing?”

“Don’t! Stop it, you…

National Coming Out Day: New Books in LGBTQ Studies

Duke University Press News

Today is the 29th annual National Coming Out Day, a celebration of the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. We’re happy to contribute to the occasion by sharing our newest scholarship in LGBTQ and sexuality studies.

978-0-8223-6914-1Developed in the United States in the 1980s, facial feminization surgery (FFS) is a set of bone and soft tissue reconstructive surgical procedures intended to feminize the faces of trans- women. In The Look of a Woman Eric Plemons foregrounds the narratives of FFS patients and their surgeons as they move from consultation and the operating room to postsurgery recovery. He shows how the increasing popularity of FFS represents a shift away from genital-based conceptions of trans- selfhood in ways that mirror the evolving views of what is considered to be good trans- medicine.

Every name even has connotations for us in some form or another. ‘Pillow’ usually means comfort, but sometimes lazy. Certain foods often taste good or bad because of our experiences around…

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff (with no canned soup)

What's for Dinner Moms?

Tuesdays and Thursdays are my slow cooker days. These are the days I depend on my favorite small appliance in my house, my slow cooker. If I don’t make a casserole for the first  person home to pop in the oven you can bet dinner is cooking in my slow cooker.

My family loves mushrooms. Me, not so much. I made this for a day I knew I would be one of the last people home and everyone before me would have dug out most of the mushrooms. You can still see a few on my plate but I used 8 oz of fresh chopped mushrooms in the dish so it started with plenty. It is just everyone kept eating them.

Trish Hopkinson

The unique thing about Jacar Press’ gorgeous online magazine One, is that they read until they find the 21 poems they really love, and those poems then make up the next issue. So submit early for your best chances to be published!

Jacar Press “believes that writing still matters. . . . Although at times we seem to be living in a post-print era, the need for the written word, the ideas, emotions, and beauty only a poem, story, essay, or novel can convey, is greater than ever.
