Come out and celebrate the near-simultaneous release of Tim/TinTim Jones-Yelvington's two new books:

THIS IS A DANCE MOVIE! (fiction collection),
Now available from Tiny Hardcore/CCM Press—order here:
This is the short story collection as playful dance party among serious things—a remix of pop culture, gay sex and celebrity, ranging from the confectionary to the visionary. A collection of sparks for various fires, from a bold young talent finding his way forward.”
—Alexander Chee

BECOME ON YR FACE (poetry chapbook)
Available 11/1 from DIAGRAM/New Michigan Press
Winner of DIAGRAM's 2016 chapbook contest, these poems' feral forms manifest fantasies of queer becoming—from supermodel to ballerina, sex bot to insect, shedding chitin, glamour and goo.

Tim will be joined by a fierce cross-genre lineup of readers (sharing work in an innovative/dynamic format inspired by the two releases):
James Tadd Adcox
Adam Atkinson
Derrick Austin
Adam D Jameson
Maybe Milks
Kathleen Rooney

+ 2-3 others TBA.
