Thanks to the Dodge Foundation for asking me to do the Giving Voice project this spring with all kinds of other fantastic poets like Christine Salvatore, CJ Sage, BJ Ward, Paul-Victor Winters, etc. The goal: to have teachers sit around and talk about poetry for enjoyment, not a display of their knowledge. Included meditation. Wonderful thing to do.
Also, my second book is coming out in February 2013 from Switchback Books. That happened in December. Um. I guess I haven't updated this blog much. But I am excited and very grateful to the editors and to Harryette Mullen who picked it.
I'm keeping my readings to a minimum until February 2013. Gotta rest up. But so happy to be reading in Connecticut in September.
