Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference 2016In 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!
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!
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!
Really big thanks to Nick Ripatrazone for the close and attentive reading of the work, and the HTMLGIANT for giving the review a home.
After many months of fiddling, it's finally arrived. Be sure to check out the pages listed above. There's information about my chapbook, Reliquary, which is currently available from Accents Publishing, along with information and links about recent and forthcoming publications. You can also keep up to date on any and all upcoming readings.
