Two poems forthcoming in GRIST

“Pastoral vocabulary, interwar” will be in an upcoming print issue of Grist, and “Point of origin” will be in an online issue of the same journal. Thanks to the thoughtful and incisive editors there for their comments on the poems.

NEA grant

I am amazed and grateful to be a recipient of a 2016 National Endowment for the Arts grant in Literature (prose). I applied with excerpts from 1873 and it was hugely validating to receive this grant on their merits. Immense thanks to the jury!!

Two more poems in BPJ

“Telephone [1]” and “Century lesson”, both of which use fragments of writing by Ingeborg Bachmann (the former throughout; the latter as an epigraph) will appear in the Winter 2015/16 issue of Beloit Poetry Journal. Thanks to the lovely and patient and kind and very thoughtful editors there.
