I can’t tell you everything, or anything, but I’ll tease you with some artwork! This book is coming out in the next season through GOLD WAKE PRESS.
I must put out another song of gratitude for all those who helped me publish a book of poems this summer, and those who helped me thrive in my artist residency, produce art, and participate in the farmer’s market.
Thanks to Ben Aleshire and Honeybee Press for leading and guiding the book publishing efforts.
Thanks to John Vincent of Revolutionary Press for enabling the letterpress process in his New Haven studio.
Thanks to Joseph Pensak, Lydia Kerns, and the New City Galerie for hosting my messy artsy self (see the photo of my studio below).
Thanks to those who helped me copy edit (Sam, Ryan, Stef, Robert, Cecile, Janet, Liza, Rebecca, Ben, am I missing anyone?)
Thanks to those who helped print, bind, glue, and fold books, what a lot of work! (Liza, Sam, Janet, Ben)
Thanks to those who fed me and loved me throughout the process (Andrea Solazzo! And all of the others)…
Amidst the chaos of the AWP writer’s conference in Los Angeles and the Mission Creek Literary festival in Iowa City, I’m celebrating with fingers crossed the news that I’m a finalist for the Green Mountain Review Book Prize.
