New News

My first-book manuscript “The Opposite of Robot is Light” was a finalist for the 2011 Lexi Rudnitsky First Book Prize. Congratulations to Laura Cronk, whose book Having Been an Accomplice was chosen as the winner and will be published by Persea Books in 2012.

My poem “X Y” was published in the Winter/Spring 2011 Issue of TriQuarterly, among so much brilliant, brilliant work.

My poem “American Sentences” was published in Two Weeks: A Digital Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, designed and produced by Johnathon Williams and Ash Bowen of Linebreak. The Anthology is beautifully compiled and contains the work of so many talented poets, including Matthew Zapruder, Bruce Bond, Oliver de la Paz, Joe Wilkins, Dorianne Laux, Seth Abramson, and more. Much thanks to Johnathon and Ash for including me.

One of my photographs, a self-portrait of sorts, was used as the cover for the Anthology.

My reading for the Writer’s Roundtable Series that was scheduled in New Jersey for the 1st of February has been cancelled to due the weather and will be rescheduled at a later date.

I will be at the AWP Conference in Washington, D.C. February 3-5. Let’s get a drink.
