AWP + Some Good News

If anyone is at AWP in NYC this week, I am on a panel on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. called The Independent Literary Center. It takes place in Conference Room L, Sheraton, Lower Level, Executive Conference Center. My paper is called: Towards a Literary Community (Against Creative Writing Programs As Such).

The good news is that I received a grant from the Fund For Poetry yesterday for my "contributions to poetry." Great way to start the week. Many thanks to the Fund. It may be time for a new computer!

I also promise to start writing more on my blog soon -- our home sale has seen several delays that have caused much stress, which has left little mental space to write.

Human Scale Plugs

Charles Bernstein gave Human Scale a little plug on his blog under the heading: "The Kind of Poetry I Like."


It was also on the recommended list at SPD a few weeks back.
