Radio Interviews and New Poems

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of sitting down for an interview with Erika Funke, host of WVIA Radio’s ArtScene program. We mostly talked about my latest poetry chapbook, Front Man, and some new material I’m writing. I had a blast sitting in the studio and talking poetry with her.

The interview will air on 88.9 FM in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area this Thursday (March 3) at 11 a.m. They will rebroadcast the interview on Sunday, March 6 at noon. If you aren’t in the area and want to listen to it, you can listen to it online by clicking here.  The interview will also be posted as a podcast by Monday. The podcast will be available here.

I again want to thank Erika Funke for this wonderful opportunity.

In addition, I want to mention that one of my new poems, “Dive,” was published this week by the national blog Young American Poets. You can read the poem by clicking here.  I mentioned Young Amerian Poets a few months ago, and I like it a lot because they give voice to poets born after 1972, new voices in contemporary American poetry.
