Anthologies, readings and contests, oh my

Time to share some new stuff with you!

I have three poems in the new anthology just out from Black Ocean, Privacy Policy: The Anthology of Surveillance Poetics, edited by Andrew Ridker. More details:
Drones, phone taps, NSA leaks, internet tracking—the headlines confirm it—we are living in a state of constant surveillance, and the idea of “the private sphere" is no longer what it used to be. Privacy Policy: The Anthology of Surveillance Poetics responds to this timely and crucial issue through the voices of over fifty contemporary poets, including Robert Pinsky, Jorie Graham, John Ashbery, Rae Armantrout, Nikki Giovanni, and D.A. Powell. Nature, ethics, technology, sex, the internet—no voyeuristic stone goes unturned in this expansive exploration of the individual, information, and how we are watched.
I also have a poem in The Book of Scented Things: 100 Contemporary Poems about Perfume, co-edited by Jehanne Dubrow and Lindsay Lusby. The editors sent each poet a vial of perfume and asked us to write a poem in response. (My poem was inspired by By Kilian Rose Oud.)

For the Denver contingent: I am reading at Leon gallery on Saturday, September 27, along with Joshua Ware and Vanessa Villareal. Leon is located at 1112 E 17th Street in Denver CO, 80218. The reading will begin at 7:00 PM.

And finally, I am serving as the poetry judge for the 1st annual Sundog Lit contest series. More details:
With Issue 8 of Sundog Lit (our first print issue), we will be publishing the winners of the 1st annual Sundog Lit Contest Series, with winners in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. All entries will be accepted through Submittable between October 1st, 2014, and January 1st, 2015. The winner in each category will receive $100 and two copies of Issue 8. Runners-up will be considered for publication in Issue 8.
That's my news! What's up with you?


  1. It's nice that you're reading in Denver, but when are you going to be reading in SF? :) (Okay, off to reading Privacy Policy)

    1. As soon as plane tickets to SF are in the $75 range :)
