Ah, conference season. So fun! Am I right?
If you happen to be in Binghamton, NY, April 27th drop into the Writing by Degrees Conference hosted by the English Department at BU. I’ll be presenting “Transclass Poetry: Witness from the Liminal Space.”
AND if you’re interested in Midwestern literature, I’ll be presenting selections from my collection Home / Sick at the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature Annual Symposium on Friday, May 17, at Michigan State University.
See you there!
Imagine my delight when I was nominated by SUNY Binghamton for the AWP Intro Journals Project competition! Alas, I did not win. BUT my friend Carrie McGath did! I love it when I can brag about a comrade in arms because, let’s face it, we’re all pretty amazing.
Poet Carrie McGath is hosting the inaugural Poetry Salon at Uncharted Books tomorrow night, January 8, at 7pm. Adam Edelman is headlining and yours truly will be reading two brand spanking new pieces during the open mic.
Wine and poetry–what could possibly be better than that?! See you there!
Fun Punch is up over at the super fantastic online journal Anti-Heroin Chic. There are so many things I love about this journal, but the thing I love best is the editor’s gift for pairing an original image with each poem. The sum is greater, as they say. (Thanks, James.)
Spring is springing slowly but surely. Several projects are taking an equally plodding pace over here at Writing Headquarters. I carry on, though, as should you. Type on, my loves.
