I have two new poems up in the latest issue of Blackbird. These are the last two poems from Translation before the book’s release September 1st!

New readings added for fall 2015!

I’ve started to update the Readings page here on the site with everything scheduled for early fall 2015. This is what’s been added so far:

 

September 18th, 7pm, at Indy Reads Bookstore, 911 Mass Ave. in Indianapolis. Book release reading.

September 21st, 4pm, at Eastern Illinois University

October 6th, 6pm, at the Wick Poetry Center, Kent State University w/ Jane Hirshfield

Of course, this is a very incomplete list, and many more readings will be added (both for fall and spring) as they are confirmed!

Website Updates!

Recent updates to the website, including:

  • New section for my forthcoming collection, with blurbs

In the next few months, expect to see cover art for the book, sample poems, and the beginnings of a schedule for book tour readings for fall 2015 and spring 2016, with updates to follow over the next 6-8 months or so.

 

Two poems at Kenyon Review

 

 

I’m excited to have two poems up at Kenyon Review’s Winter issue right now! In addition to the text, there is a recording of me reading both poems.

First Book Catalog Page

Some really exciting news: the catalog page for my first book is now up at Kent State University Press, complete with blurbs!

http://www.kentstateuniversitypress.com/2014/translation/

No cover art yet, but sometime in the Spring we should have that finalized.

Pre-orders are available now, and the book is set to drop on September 1st of next year.

 

Book Update: New Title!

Just a quick update on book progress:

The editing and shaping process has been wonderful thus far. I think we’re close to a final version. The big news is that the book will have a new title: Translation

This was the original title, many years ago, prior to playing about with dozens of others. It feels most appropriate to the intentions and content of the collection, so I’m really excited to officially be returning to it.

More updates soon!
