For nearly 10 years I edited both Poets off Poetry and Song of the Week for Coldfront Magazine. Both series featured poets writing about music.

Sadly, the content from Coldfront has gone the way of the dodo, but here is a complete record of contributors.

No amount of words can describe how grateful I am to have published all of this writing.

A playlist of all the Songs of the Week lives on though, and can be listened to here.
