So… I’m planning a new chapbook. Originally the release date was going to be the end of September, but now it’s looking like it will be the middle of December.
What would people like to see in it?
I’ve written a lot of poetry in the last few years, but the last book I put out was Argonautica, which was not exactly a best-seller, and I haven’t re-printed it. Before that, it was Percival which wasn’t exactly a great mover, either. Before that, it was Fame’s Younger Sister, back in 2001. I’ve reprinted that one the most, but it’s not really representative of me any more. I’ve gotten deeper and broader in the last five years, and really it’s time to put together a new book.
What do people NOT have copies of, that they would like to see in print?
That’s issue #1.
The second issue is that and I now have competing schedules. I’m off-duty on Mondays and Thursdays, which is exactly when she tends to have longer days at work. This means that sometimes I’m going to have to give her space, but sometimes I’m going to be hanging out with her.
What poetry readings should I be checking out on Mondays and Thursdays?
