Zoltar!

So, here’s a nifty thing: One of my poems was selected to be handed out at Red Hen Press‘s Poetry Prom by poet Nicelle Davis, who coordinated a human Zoltar fortune-telling machine at the event. You know, Zoltar — like from the movie Big. (Apologies to anyone who was prematurely aged or turned into Tom Hanks due to receiving my poem.)

Anyway, here’s a shot of the poem laid out all pretty (bottom left):

Thanks to Nicelle and Red Hen Press for including me!

Radio Silence

Well, it’s been quiet around here lately, but here’s what I’m up to…

I’ve been writing less poetry lately and focusing on my current novel-in-progress. It’s a longer, slower, more invisible-to-the-outside-world process, but it’s churning along.

I’m very excited to announce that I’m heading to the Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference in a couple weeks! I’ll be workshopping some of my fiction, meeting some really excellent writers, and soaking in some summer Vermont scenery (I know it’s famous for its autumns, but I’ve always been partial to Vermont’s supersaturated green summers).

Wordward!
