I don’t know why it has taken me so long to tell you, but I recently learned that my first collection of poems, Aphoria, will be published by Brooklyn Arts Press in winter of 2013! I am crazy excited about this. I have been sending out that manuscript for over a year and a half and I am so pleased that it has found such a good home. It still doesn’t feel really real yet. Right now it is just this abstract feeling of something that I’ve wanted/worked for for so long. That will of course change, but for now I’m sort of swimming in its disjointed beauty.
In other news, Bird, LLC. is almost done with its run of Song of the Week, with pieces by Elisa Gabbert, Dan Boehl, Matt Rasmussen, Justin Marks, Sampson Starkweather, and Chris Tonelli. Next Monday will be the grand finale featuring an awesome song selected by Sommer Browning.
Also, the new Poets off Poetry went live today featuring an essay about John Cale by Andrew Durbin. Check it out here.
Oh, and I have another review up at The Rumpus. Check it out here.
Lastly, I heart this song.
