Info and reservations:

“Songs of My Selfie is an enchanting, heartrending, and utterly relatable read for any and all millennials. This is a wonderful collection of stories from some of the brightest young writers today.” —Portland Book Review

“If you want a preview of some writers with brighter futures than the newspapers anticipate, well, here you go.”
—JF Sargent,

“This is the book you want to read if you are curious about who’ll be driving the truck in a few years.”
—Ethan Rutherford, The Peripatetic Coffin and Other Stories

With fresh new voices and edgy prose, seventeen stories by millennial writers offer a cross-section of vibrant young characters: unemployed grads deep in debt, expectant mothers on the cusp of adulthood, online relationship addicts, and twenty-somethings at war with their families’ expectations. Here are the strong and the weak, the self-aware and those who reject reality—all carefully crafted to buck the common perception of this generation.

THE MONTHLY series at Cornelia Street Cafe, hosted by Three Rooms Press, brings together writers, artists, philosophers, and scientists to delve into a different theme each month from divergent perspectives. Past themes have included conspiracy theories (on the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination), Code Poetry, an exploration of poetry that simultaneously works on multiple levels and languages, and notable literary figures including Charles Bukowski and William Burroughs.

Three Rooms Press is a fierce New York-based independent publisher inspired by dada, punk and passion. Founded in 1993, it serves as a leading independent publisher of cut-the-edge creative, including fiction, memoir, poetry translations, drama and art. In addition, Three Rooms Press produces and promotes a variety of literary and cultural events in New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Brussels, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and more, including readings, plays, workshops and concerts.


Our First Songs of My Selfie Gathering

In December, contributor and first place winner of the Quarter-Life Crisis contest, Angus McLinn ("Baby Teeth") and I ("The Edge of Happiness") read from our short stories at 3RP's Prose! Poetry! Party! at Cornelia Street Cafe. Guest judge Meagan Brothers was also a featured reader, sharing a short prequel to Weird Girl and What's His Name!

Afterward, I met contributors Jared Shaffer ("Use Without Pity") and Carolyn Drake ("Pill Pusher") and we spent half the night talking books, literature, and of course, Victorian literature. I'm so excited for this little family of writers and collaborators!

Last night marked the book birthday of Weird Girl and What's His Name! I've been working on this novel with author Meagan Brothers at Three Rooms Press for more than a year, and I could not be more delighted for her. The launch party at Cornelia Street Cafe was perfect; the room was packed, the books were flying off the sales table, and friends, fans, and colleagues were so happy to be celebrating this phenomenal story. It was a triumphant night. 

Though its official release isn't until Tuesday, copies of Weird Girl and What's His Name have been spotted all over. Copies can be found at Book Culture, Barnes and Noble NYC, McNally Jackson, and of course, Amazon, to name just a few. Found a copy at your local bookstore? Share a picture below!
