Another AWP is in the books. As always it was a blast. I don't think I know how to distill the experience any longer. There are so many great writers and people I get to spend time with that it makes having a normal job feel lame when it's all over. I was really stoked to finally get a chance to read from Code for Failure, which went over really well. And then Ben Tanzer wanted to do a podcast interview with me for his stop on the impending CfF blog tour. He wanted to do it in the men's room. So we did. And while we were locked in a dark stall Mensah Demary of Specter Magazine took a snippet of a bootleg video with his iPhone. Check it out HERE!
Also got some good news upon my return, that my chapbook Crushing on a Ghost will come into the world later this year from Maverick Duck Press, who did Mile Zero!
And just for kicks, I've made a little free .pdf of my five-poem cycle, Love & Rod McKuen, that is available on the * page here on the site. Check it out if you're in the mood for a handful of free poems.
