Former plain china editor-in-chief Safiya Sinclair has perfected the recipe for success: prolific and meaningful writing. Since leaving our staff in 2010, she has had poetry published in various magazines and journals, and her first chapbook of poetry and prose has recently been published. Catacombs, available from Argos Books, has been praised by poets Mark Wunderlich as “a narrative haunted by figments of the seen and unseen,” and Eddie Baugh has called Safiya “an arresting new voice.”
Safiya has had recent poetry published in Fawlt Magazine, among other journals, which you can read online. Check out my favorite, “Kingdom-come,” here.
We’ll be highlighting other plain china alumni accomplishments in upcoming blogs. If you have news to share, let us know.
