A new poem from The Ground is up at the excellent new journal Pangyrus. Check it out for a preview of the interactive version of the whole book.
An update on AWP events: The Ground will launch on Thursday, April 9, at 6:30PM at Honey. Forrest Gander will introduce the book, and other readers include Marilyn Chin, Arielle Greenberg, and Patrick Rosal, so it promises to be a good time.
If you miss me at Honey, later that night at 8PM I'll be celebrating the launch of Hick Poetics at Patrick's Cabaret, reading along with contributors including G.C. Waldrep, Dara Weir, and others. Friday, from 1-3PM, I'll be at the Drunken Boat table at the bookfair, signing copies. Come say hi!
Friday from 6-8, Juked is co-hosting a reception with Solstice, Grey Sparrow, and Talking Writing. We'll be recovering from two days of AWP at North 45, Millennium Hotel 1313 Nicollet Mall (look for our event on the AWP offsite list).
And I'll be manning the Juked table on and off. I would love it if you'd stop by to say hello.
