Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference 2016

In other news, I’m excited to say that I will be at the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference this summer, starting on August 9th, as the Stanley P. Young Fellow in Poetry and assisting A. Van Jordan in his workshop.

It should be a wonderful conference, with readings by so many talented writers over the course of the ten days. If you’re in the Middlebury, VT area, considering stopping by for a lecture or a reading!

AWP 2014 Seattle

#AWP2014 is almost here! The excitement builds as the money slowly bleeds away.

I'll be in Seattle this year representing the University of Illinois and Ninth Letter Online, which I'm editing this semester. Should be a wonderful time!

Also, I'll be signing chapbooks at the Accents Publishing Table (AA3) between 12-1pm on Friday, February 28th. Please come by and say hi!


Interview with The Fine Delight

Nick Ripatrazone did a wonderful interview with me about Reliquary over at The Fine Delight. Here's a brief excerpt:

That someone would see the piety in these things never occurred to me. Furthermore, that I myself might still engage with, respect and awe these ideas that seemed so far away, was amazing. I still can;t sit here and claim to be some arbitrary definition of a 'religious person,' but the book allowed me to remember what faith (and prayer) might actually be: this skin that's ever-molting; never as stationary and calm as you'd hope it to be.

You should definitely check it out!
