Lantern Review investigates “fob,” Bull City Press’ presale discount on Another & Another Grind Anthology & reading @ SE WI Festival of Books!

June 15, 2012

Just returned from a transformative week at Ghost Ranch in New Mexico where I caught up with teachers past (Juan Felipe Herrera, Chris Abani, liz gonzalez & Maiana Minahal), farflung friends and where I was able to take a poetry workshop from Kimiko Hahn.


I was happily surprised to find that Iris Law & Lantern Review had investigated my poem, “fob” right alongside Kimiko Hahn’s villanelle, “The Fever.” Send your poems their way to Issue 5 (Hybridity)!
