There is more good publication news from the Los Angeles literary community. Two Los Angeles poets, Rocío Carlos and Rachel McLeod Kaminer, are being published by The Operating System. The following was the announcement from the press’ Facebook page:
“More good news from behind our tight-lipped submission vaults! The OS is thrilled to announce that we’ll be publishing “ATTENDANCE,” a collaboration between Rocío Carlos and Rachel McLeod Kaminer, in late 2018!
Here’s a little more on these luminous minds:
Rocío Carlos attends from the land of the chaparral. Born and raised in Los Ángeles, she is widely acknowledged to have zero short term memory but know the names of trees. Her poems have appeared in Chaparral, Angel City Review, The Spiral Orb and Cultural Weekly. She was selected as a 2003 Pen Center “Emerging Voices” fellow. She collaborates as a partner at Wirecutter Collective and is a teacher of the language arts. Her favorite trees are the olmo (elm)and aliso (sycamore).
Rachel McLeod Kaminer grew up in the Blue Ridge of the Appalachian Mountains near the French Broad River. She lives in the Los Ángeles River basin and works up the Arroyo Seco in the Hahamongna alluvial basin. Her book of poetry As in the dark, descend was published in 2016 with Writ Large Press; she’s also a partner-in-crime at Wirecutter Collective. Rachel’s bread job is in education, but she’s just as likely to be editing, reading, or messaging on tumblr.
and…thanks to Chiwan Choi for his tentacular conduit wisdom <3″
Congratulations goes out to Rocío Carlos and Rachel McLeod Kaminer for their hard work. Los Angeles Literature wishing them both continued success.
