I started this blog in an effort to put my creative efforts first. It is a departure from my more diary-style blog at Livejournal.com.

Grits For You does not have a specific theme in mind except art and politics. The main drive for me is look toward the future and keep the rear view mirror effect to a minimum unless I am truly moved to write about a thing/person of the past.

Grits is a nickname I earned at a high school summer writing program. I would prefer all comments/other correspondence to be addressed to Grits. I’m not keeping complete anonymity, I just like the name and I think it’s more memorable.

But since you’re here, it’s a bit about me:

General
Poet/writer of anything and everything
Born and raised in Jersey
Recently transplanted New Yorker
Liberal
Random
A little crazy
with a tendency to
dance in public,
worry excessively,
over analyze,
and get passionate while watching politically-based TV shows.

Likes
Big cities
Small bookstores
Hosting gatherings
Old jeans and sweatshirts
Holding hands
Surprise visits
Thunderstorms
Highly educated people
Reading and writing on the subway
Compassion

Dislikes
One-track minds
Dust
Disorganization
Lack of spontaneity
Feeling too full after a meal
Lobster
Inconsiderate drivers
Expensive clothes that fall apart quickly
Public harassment
Reality TV (I have a couple of exceptions to this)

Enjoy.

    Hey there – read your poetry at Moon Milk. I was published there in their first issue. Loved your work. I’m also from Jersey- and also going to the New School in the fall for my MFA. Care to chat about writing? I’m at lisambasile@gmail.com

      Hi there!

      Thanks for your note. I’d love to chat about writing – especially with another New School student! Awesome.

      I just returned from vacation, so I’m just catching up on my email. I’m actually part of a reading that’s being held this Thursday, June 17 at LaunchPad in Brooklyn. It would be awesome if you could come – it would be a great place to meet up! It’s from 8 to 10. If not, we can get together some other time.

      Thanks again for reading!
      -Britt


  2. I really liked “13 ways of living without you” from Moon Milk Review. When I read your bio and it said you had work forthcoming from anderbo, I grinned and looked at the poem again and thought: Yeah, that seems ’bout right.

    It has that ring of realism and surrealism that the best work from anderbo tends to have.
