Rafe Posey’s short story collection, The Book of Broken Hymns, was a 2012 Lambda Literary Awards finalist. His short fiction, poetry, and essays can be found in The Light Ekphrastic, Poydras Review, Empty Sink, and Welter, and on The Rumpus. He teaches writing in Maryland, but is easier to find on Twitter, at @ponyonabalcony.
