New Boog City Interview and Welcome to Boog City Fest This Weekend

A new issue of Boog City is up with my interview with Argos Books.  You can read it here. Argos Books is also the featured press for the d.a. levy lives portion of the Welcome to Boog City Poetry Festival this weekend.


The full line up for the festival this weekend can be found here.

I had a pretty good time at AWP, was definitely in need of a break from my routine.Even though it is cheesy to admit, it is inspiring spend the weekend among writers and hear new people read.

The real challenge now is to hang on to that motivation.

Reading at AWP and Stacey Tran’s Fake Haiku!

Next week is AWP, and even though it is in D.C. this year (aka the belly of the beast), I am still excited to go spend the weekend with poets.

I am reading on Thursday night at the D.C. Arts Center for Bloof Books.  Facebook invite here.


In other news, Stacey Tran’s chapbook Fake Haiku is hot off the presses, literally. Me and the rest of the letterpress team have been working on this chapbook since September.  We are so happy it’s done! Many thanks to Wendy’s Subway for providing the space and resources, to Emily Toder for teaching us how to use a letter press, and of course to Stacey for sending us her writing and trusting us with her work!


In #resistance news, I’ve been making phone calls today and leaving voicemails with scripts provided by I also came across this free fax service faxZero from a friend on Facebook. You can send up to five free faxes (via email!) a day to folks in the Senate and the House of Representatives. Write whatever you want in the text box, but “No to DeVos” seems to be trending.

In solidarity.
