3X Poetry News


The Chapbook Interview

Laura Madeline Wiseman and I talk about chapbooks over at The Chapbook Interview.  One good thing Wiseman asked about was "ways you promote and serve other chapbook poets."  While I'm not sure I was able to answer that one very well, it's clear that Wiseman's list of what she's done recently to promote and serve chapbook poets would be a long one.

2. Joshua Ware's second and third books Unwanted Invention and Vargtimmen (published together by the wonderful Furniture Press Books) are now available.  Seriously.  Some of those Imaginary Portrait poems first appeared in the third issue of Country Music.

3.  I'm zeroing in on some book tour dates for the spring of 2016:

January 29th, Lawrence, Kansas (with Laura Madeline Wiseman and Dennis Etzel)
January 30th, Kansas City, Missouri  (with Laura Madeline Wiseman and Dennis Etzel)
March 27th.  Story Fort. Boise, Idaho (with Paige Ackerson-Kieley)

Additional dates to come, possibly to include Omaha and Cincinnati.

New City

is now available with BlazeVOX [books] as well as on Amazon.

It is an honor to be working with BlazeVOX once again, as they have been doing some strong work lately.  I am also excited to announce a 2016 Midwest reading tour with BlazeVOX poets Dennis Etzel and Laura Madeline Wiseman.  They are both excellent poets, and more details on the tour will be available as they unfold.

March 1st

Today is the 145th anniversary of the family farm,
which has hosted six consecutive generations.
We're getting more chickens.

Thanks, Nebraska.
