Up on lit zine 7×7 LA now is “Vaseline,” an experimental text-collage story I co-created with Kevin Sampsell.

The piece is about shady sleep studies and sinister experiments and sexy dreams. It was created following 7×7 LA’s surrealism-inspired artistic constraints: Kevin and I went back and forth seven times, reacting to each other’s works by responding within 24 hours with a new text or collage, each created within a few hours.

I’m so excited and honored to have been able to collaborate with Kevin Sampsell, a writer I admire. Read my Five Firsts interview with Kevin, and my review of his novel, This Is Between Us.

Hope you enjoy “Vaseline“!
