I’m excited to have a poem, “Definite Article,” included in the new issue of Fugue Literary Journal, along with some real wonderful work (check out Meg Freitag’s two poems, especially that sprawling and hearbreaking “Red Milk”). Thank you thank you to Cameron Read McGill and Corey Oglesby for including this strange poem in a beautiful issue.
Hannah Cohen said some amazing things at Platypus Press’s Wildness about my latest poem in Birdfeast, “Hello Again.” It’s super generous and kind. As a writer, all you want is for someone to read your work closely and carefully like this, and to think about it. Also, the phrase “the disconnect and viscera of history” from Hannah’s write-up better find its way into one of her own poems, because that’s just great.
So thrilled to share that I was selected as a 2017 BOAAT Retreat Fellow, and will be joining seven wonderful writers and workshop leader Aracelis Girmay next summer in the mountains of Vilas, North Carolina for a week of poetry, writing and reflection. Many, many thanks to Sean Shearer and Ysabel Y. Gonzalez for giving me this amazing opportunity.
