I’ve got a long poem, “Arguing with James Baldwin the Day After the Re-election of Barack Obama,” at a great new journal, Codex. Lots of strong work in this issue. Check it out.
“Wish,” a poem from my manuscript-in-progress, has just been published in this spring’s issue of Blackbird: A Journal of Online Literature and the Arts. Lots of great work in this issue, including poems by Melissa Ginsburg and short fiction by Michael McGriff.
My poem “Drought” appears in the latest issue of Orion. Lots of wonderful stuff in this issue (as always–Orion’s plain great!), including a stunning/scary essay on the breast cancer industrial complex by Jennifer Lunden and a dreamy meditation on borders, dying rivers, and ghosts by Luis Alberto Urrea.
You can now check out the lineup for next fall’s The Vibrant Word: A Lutheran Festival of Writing conference, along with my poem “Then I Packed You Up the Ridge Like a Brother on My Back.”
