I have a poem forthcoming in Penwood Review, a Martian poem forthcoming in Issue 12 of Silver Blade, three poems on Matilda Fletcher forthcoming in Miller’s Pond, one poem on Matilda Fletcher and two poems on a new series I started during the Master Poetry class with Alicia Ostriker on Lucile Wiseman forthcoming in the brand new Sole Lit Journal. Finally, a friend suggested I submit to The Reprint, a online publication that publishes previously published work that appeared in print only. They accepted the poem “First Kisses,” also forthcoming in SHE WHO LOVES HER FATHER from Dancing Girl Press next year.
I just sent back the proofs for my poems “Toxic Drift” and “Photographs of a Scrapbook” to the anthology of poems in response to Japan by Pirene’s Fountain. Other contributors include J.P. Dancing Bear, Jane Hirshfield, Dorianne Laux, and Lyn Lifshin. This is going to be a great book!
Dispatches from the Classroom: Graduate Students on Creative Writing Pedagogy, an anthology that includes an essay I originally wrote for my comps, will be released December 5. At MMLA, I presented with Karen Gentry, Joe Rein, Michael Clark, and Anthony Sams. Smart, smart teachers. I can’t wait to read all the essays and then try out their teaching methods in my own classes.
In other news, I’ve been accepted as a writer in residence at the Prairie Center of the Arts for May 14 -July 4, 2012. My interview for Lit Undressed was listed on tumblr and Omahype lists the event in its news and events. Finally, I’m listed in Poets & Writers directory of writers that includes 9,000+ contemporary authors. Talk about great company.
