An interview I did this summer with The Missouri Review audio editor Traci Cox – about poetry, my writing process, and my poems featured in the Winter 2016 issue of the Missouri Review – has just been posted on TMR Soundbooth Podcast. Thanks so much again for this wonderful conversation, Traci!

I had a great time reading and talking about my poetry last Thursday with Albert Abonado on his radio show Flour City Yawp on WAYO 104.3FM Rochester!
Listen to a podcast of the show HERE.
A poem and a short interview with me have just been published online as part of Fairy Tale Review‘s Pins & Needles Q&A series. Poetry Editor Jon Riccio asked some really fun questions about my two poems published in FTR‘s Ochre Issue, and in the space of a few hundred words I managed to cram in Robyn Hitchcock, Mary Ruefle, Craig Raine, Anthony Burgess, Dostoyevsky, James Taylor, Pringles, T.S. Eliot, Ross Gay, P.G. Wodehouse, and Alpha Centauri. Plus the full text of one of the poems, “We’re Actually Fabulous” is included at the end of the interview. Thanks again Jon!
A while back I was interviewed about poems from my first book The Maintenance of the Shimmy-Shammy for Where It’s At with Bob Early. The episode just went live. Thanks again to Bob for inviting me to talk about my work. I hope you all enjoy listening.

When it rains it pours! This profile of me has just been published on Syracuse.com’s CNY Books & Authors column and will appear in the Syracuse Post-Standard‘s Sunday print edition Empire Magazine on either the 4th or the 11th. Thank you to author Casey Rose Frank for reaching out and for writing such a generous piece about me and my poetry
I’m thrilled and honored to share the news that a full-length interview with me has just been published in the new issue of FOLIO, the literary magazine at American University. At 7 pages it’s the longest interview that I’ve ever done, and I want to thank Editor-in-Chief Kangsen Feka Wakai for his thoughtful and stimulating questions. The interview appears in Issue 31 (Spring 2016), which is focused on the Surreal and Fantastical, and some of the questions address my first poetry book published last year by Steel Toe Books, The Maintenance of the Shimmy-Shammy. This issue’s other interview is with Alberto Rios! You can grab a copy of the journal for $8 HERE.
Here’s an interview with me, published today at Great Writers Steal — as part of their series called “Hey, Why’d You Do That?” — in which I respond to questions about my poem “Nerve Endings Like Strawberry Runners” recently published online at Witness.
The interview includes both the phrase “(certainty + uncertainty)” and my idea of what a poem written for a cat would look like. So, like, you’ve been warned. 🙂
Thanks Ken Nichols!
