Recent Happenings of Another Nature Altogether

I have joined the editorial staff of the historic literary journal Southwest Review. To find me on their new masthead, cross-reference “Roving Mustang and Editor-At-Large.”

Crepuscule W/ Nellie was recently featured on the Chapter One Podcast. You can listen to Episode 25 here.

Hard to believe, but OPP will soon have completed its first full season. On the afternoon of Sunday, May 21 2017, we will be sharing Frank O’Hara’s Lunch Poems (plus a few more of the great New York School poet’s “greatest hits”). As always, you can check out the complete line-up for this reading, and get more details about the series, by visiting the Other People’s Poetry (OPP) website, or liking OPP on Facebook.

More zines! The White Rock Zine Machine and MakeShift Photography have collaborated on an exhibit entitled “Significance Imposed.” From May 11 through June 3 at Deep Ellum’s Kettle Art Gallery, you can view photos and read accompanying poems by myself and 11 other area writers. You can also pick up zines commemorating each collaboration at both Kettle and Deep Vellum Books. Thanks to the Dallas Observer for giving some extra attention to this project.

Christopher Woodall has written a frankly amazing novel with November, now available from Dalkey Archive. I was fortunate enough to speak with him recently about his relationship to this book and the larger project of which it is part. You can read Christopher’s thoughtful and generous answers to my questions over at Entropy.

Thanks to Denton’s Spiderweb Salon collective for asking me to participate in their 5th anniversay celebration of National Poetry Month. You can find 2 new poems and a quick writing prompt on their beautiful new website.

Other People’s Poetry (OPP) returns Sunday, March 26 2017, at Deep Vellum Books. Another band of DFW poets will be presenting Adrienne Rich’s The Dream of a Common Language. Check out the complete line-up for this reading, and get more details about the series, by visiting the Other People’s Poetry (OPP) website, or liking OPP on Facebook. You can also read D Magazine‘s profile of OPP (featuring a slight recap of the Adrienne Rich reading) here.

A virtual roundtable I recently moderated featuring Anomalous Press authors Scott Esposito and A. Kendra Greene has now had its proceedings published in the (also virtual) pages of Entropy.
