In case you missed yesterday’s broadcast, you can stream or download the show HERE. And thanks for listening!
I just spent a delightful lunch hour being interviewed about contemporary American poetry, prose poetry, and my book The Maintenance of the Shimmy-Shammy by Grant Reeher, Director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University.

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
My article “State of Flash (and Prose Poetry): Why We Write ‘Em!” is going to be featured at NANO Fiction in September, and I’m so excited. For this, I called up a handfull of writer friends and asked them why in the world they write prose poems or flash fiction. The answers I got were wonderful. Also funny, insightful, sometimes frightening, and even lyrical.
Check out Adam Peterson’s “Bylaws of the State of Flash,” the most recent post in NF’s State of Flash series. You may not have known it, but in the State of Flash there are fifty bylaws. And they’re not to be sniffed at.
