Happy (Poetry) 2010.

Hey now.

It’s 2010.

New year, new decade, etc.

I guess it means what you make it.

That said, things are on the up and up over here.

I recently found out that Greying Ghost Press will be publishing my chapbook Office Work.  It is my first chapbook and I am positively beaming about it.  Some poems from said chapbook are forthcoming from Free Verse.   Greying Ghost also accepted manuscripts from Paige Taggart and Sampson Starkweather.  Exciting to be in such good company!

In other news, Sommer Browning has posted a recording of the reading I did for her Multifarious Array Series a few weeks ago.  You can get the direct link to the audio here.

Then there was this good-bad news from Alice James Books.

Did I mention that I went to see City & Colour last weekend?  Here’s the song he opened with:

Oh, and I am happy to be reading for The Stain of Poetry Series at Goodbye Blue Monday on Friday, March 26.  Will check in with more information on that soon.

Oh, and maybe that journal that I edit will come out sometime this century and we’ll have a party and everyone will have lots of fun…

Until we meet again.

New POP is up featuring an essay by Daniel Nester!


I am super, super happy to announce that after being on hiatus for a few months a new POP is up and ready for your reading PLEASURE (I wrote please instead of pleasure in the email announcement I sent out yesterday in haste, embarrassing…), featuring an essay by Daniel Nester!

You can read the essay here.  You can also check out previous POP essays here.

Please read & enjoy and blog & forward far and wide.

Thank you to Daniel, and to all of POP’s previous and forthcoming contributors.

In other news, I will be reading some poems this Friday, December 4 at Pete’s Candy Store for The Multifarious Array Reading Series.  The reading begins at 7pm.

It would sure be swell to see you there (apologies for using the word swell but I just started watching Mad Men).
