My "Writers at Work" interview with San Francisco Humanities
Review is up here;
thanks to all involved for
the great experience.
Moved to NYC!
I've just learned that To
Lose & to Pretend is
being read in an
Interdisciplinary Humanities course at San Francisco State University,
as a result of the students voting to this effect. Thank you,
SFSU students; it is a great honor to be representing "modern poetry"
from JMWW Quarterly in
their Winter '09 issue. Thanks,
Adam Robinson; glad you liked it.
