Crab Creek Review

I’m delighted to have received my contributor’s copy of the fall issue of Crab Creek Review, which contains my poem “You Can Keep Your Employee of the Month Award” — in addition to so much great poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Thanks so much again Martha Silano, Ronda Broatch, and Jenifer Browne Lawrence!

To celebrate, I’ve uploaded to SoundCloud audio of me reading this poem at The Downtown Writer’s Center’s 2015 August Occasion in Clinton, NY.

Listen to the poem HERE.

The Bakery

My poems “My Own Nature” and “Me and What Army” have just been published by The Bakery, with audio of me reading in my backyard complete with crows cawing and dogs barking.

If you haven’t yet visited The Bakery, you’ll want to. They publish a piping hot poem every day of the week, by the likes of Matthew Cooperman, Joshua Young, Nick Sturm, Rob MacDonald, K.M.A. Sullivan & Nate Pritts, plus Monthly Specials such as October’s with Timothy Liu. The Bakery is edited by Albert Abonado. Thanks Al!

Audio & Video Podcasts from Superstition Review

The wonderful folks at Superstition Review, who published four of my poems in Issue 9, have just podcasted audio of me reading the poems in my library, with the cat locked out so she wouldn’t keep meowing into the microphone, and video of me reading them in the wonderful weeds and brush behind our house and on the playground of a local elementary school. The video was shot on my girlfriend’s Android phone, so it’s lofi (a.k.a. blurry).

Thank you Superstition Review!

Arts & Letters PRIME

The first issue of Arts & Letters PRIME was released this last November containing both the text and audio of me reading my two poems “Free Verse” and “You Can Always Buy a New Dress.” PRIME is a newly launched e-supplement to the print edition of this wonderful journal, specially made for the iPad/iPhone. If you have one of those, you can download the issue 1.1 here. If you don’t, never fear, that link also takes you to a place where you can download a basic version to be read on an e-pub reader.

In addition to my two poems, this issue features flash essays, including one by Dinty Moore, visual art, audio and video.

My final Poets Weave

The last show from my time as host of The Poets Weave is now available as a podcast/stream. It’s the third and final section from Curtis Bauer’s reading this last spring as part of the Indiana Review’s Blue Light Reading Series. I’ve posted it on my Poets Weave page, or you can just visit directly here. It’s five powerful minutes of poetry and a lovely end to my three years as host. I’ll miss it. A lot. Thank you to Curtis and all my generous guests, the publishers and poets who allowed me to read their work, and most of all to my wonderful producer LuAnn Johnson. I know Romayne Rubinas Dorsey will be a great host. Visit often to see what she gets up to!
