NEW FICTION: I haven't published fiction in a while, so I'm happy to point to a new short story in a beautiful online journal, Open: Journal of Arts and Letters. The editors do a great job of curating the artwork displayed with every text on the site.
NEW POEM: I feel honored to have a poem in the latest, — 17th anniversary issue of Pedestal Magazine. In good company, too, with many poets I admire: Kelli Russell Agodon, Joan Colby, John Bradley,Andrea Hollander, Jared Smith and more. Check it out!
A NEW GOODREADS REVIEW: With care and insight, Scots poet and fiction writer Jim Murdoch reviews The World As Is.
PEDESTAL MAGAZINE REVIEW: Good "ink" on The World As Is has just appeared at Pedestal Magazine in the form of this review by Richard Allen Taylor. "A worthy sampler of a distinguished poetic career," he concludes, which I have to admit is what I was aiming for.
PBS NEWSHOUR POETRY: A nicely written interview by Mary Jo Brooks, along with one of my more topical poems and a recording of me reading it, is now up at the PBS NewsHour Poetry website. You'll love the title of the piece! Trust me.
