Regina O’Melveny’s The Shape of Emptiness now available through online sellers!
If I were able to meet all of my Sheila-Na-Gig online & Sheila-Na-Gig Editions authors in person, I would be a well-traveled editor, indeed. Someday. . . . I am very lucky, however, to have had the opportunity to recently meet Sheila-Na-Gig Editions’ newest author Regina O’Melveny over lunch in sunny California. How I managed to forget to take a picture with her AND bring her book for her to sign is beyond me. I must have been star struck! Regina’s lovely book The Shape of Emptiness is now available through online retailers. You may also order it through Sheila-Na-Gig online: https://sheilanagigblog.com/sheila-na-gig-editions/
I co-founded the small press poetry magazine Sheila-Na-Gig in California in 1990. I ran the press for 10 years, producing 14 print copies of the journal. I now hold a Ph.D. in 20th Century American Literature from Ohio University and an MFA in poetry from the University of Washington. I am currently an Associate Professor of English at Ohio University Southern, where I teach courses in composition, American literature, and creative writing. My poetry, creative nonfiction, and critical essays have appeared, or are forthcoming, in The Brock Review, Proteus, Rattle, Spillway, and the critical anthologies, The Body in Medical Culture; On the Literary Nonfiction of Nancy Mairs; and Stephen King’s Contemporary Classics: Reflections on the Modern Master of Horror.
