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.

two poems forthcoming in JUBILAT

jubilat has long been on my list of journals I would love to have work appear in. Thanks to Caryl Pagel for thinking of me and asking to read new work, two poems—”Ceriserie”, which is part of a manuscript by the same title that takes flight from Joshua Clover’s poem “Ceriserie“, and “One meter squared”.

Pushcart nomination

I was nominated for a 2015 Pushcart Prize, which was a complete surprise. Kind of always thought those were for other, realer poets. Thanks, nominator, whoever you are.
