Press Round-Up

I wanted to share some links to some various press that my collection All That Remains has received over the last few weeks. Boston Literary Magazine just ran an interview with me about the book. You can read that here. Electric City also ran an interview with me, which you can read here. Finally, you can hear a radio interview I did with WVIA here.

I’ll continue posting more info about readings and reviews over the next few weeks.

Some Fall Publishing Credits

It’s been a fairly productive fall for me in terms of publishing credits, so I thought I’d share some of the news.

Two of my poems, “Mr. Dobson” and “After Working Hours,” appeared in theĀ print and onlineĀ fall issue of Boston Literary Magazine. They can be read here.

Three of my poems, “At 18,” “Country Girl,” and “Road Fears,” appeared in the November issue of Foliate Oak Literary Magazine, which is run out of the University of Arkansas-Monticello. The poems can be read here.

Finally, three of my poems were published in the fall issue of Red Rock Review, based out of the College of Southern Nevada. The poems only appear in print. I’m especially happy to be part of that issue because there’s a lot of wonderful work in there, including an elegy about poet Ruth Stone, written by Dorraine Laux, winner of Guggenheim Fellowships and NEA fellowships.

I’m hoping to be just a productive and fortunate heading into the winter months and new year.


Some Love from Journals

I’m thrilled to announce that I got a copy of the Michigan-based journal Third Wednesday in the mail today, and in the latest issue, I am the featured poet. Eight of my poems are included, as well as an introduction to my writing. Most of the poems included will be in my forthcoming full-length collection, which Unbound Content is publishing in 2013. The Third Wednesday poems are a nice preview of the book, especially in terms of the form, tone, and subject matter that my new collection will focus on.

Unfortunately, this journal doesn’t put any of its work online, but you can order copies through the website by clicking here.

I especially like the work Third Wednesday does because it often features a small sampling of writing by students in Detroit area schools. The editorial staff works with the organization Inside Out Literary Arts Project to foster creative writing in city schools and then supports some of the work through the journal.

In addition to the poems in Third Wednesday, I also have two pieces in the latest issue of Boston Literary Magazine. You can read them by clicking here, or ordering a print copy through the website.
