Book Release: Ghosts, Trolls, and Other Things on the Internet

Have you ever had a crush on a cam girl?

Would you dedicate a poem to Taylor Swift?

What would you do if you were the last millennial with a flip phone?

GHOSTS, TROLLS, AND OTHER THINGS ON THE INTERNET is the second poetry chapbook from C. E. Hoffman, now out from Bottlecap Press!

Satirical, sad, and sweet, Hoffman observes the misinformation age as a technological outcast, making pop culture poetic, and poetry pop culture.

Buy it here, babes! 💕💕
