Upcoming Readings, a Poem, and a Review

A quick note about some upcoming readings:

  • Monday, April 8th: Indian Springs School, Birmingham, AL, 7pm. I’m part of the Indian Springs Visiting Writers Series which was highlighted recently in The Nation. Looking forward to seeing Douglas Ray and Jessica Smith, and discussing Skin Shift with their students! The public is welcome.
  • Thursday, April 11th: Gay & Lesbian Poetry Night @ City College of NY, NY, 6:30pm. Room NAC 6/316.
  • Saturday, April 13th: Rainbow Book Fair, 12noon-6pm, Holiday Inn Midtown, 440 W 57th St, NY. I won’t be reading, but I’ll be around the SRP table to sign copies of Skin Shift.
  • Monday, May 20th: KGB Bar, NY, NY, 7pm. Reading with fellow UM poetry alum Rae Gouirand. Her collection Open Winter is amazing and has won all sorts of prizes and you should go buy and read it right now.


I have a new poem, “Ditch-Digger” in the latest issue of Raintown Review. It’s from a new project, Book of M, which includes the Marilyn poems of recent years, a series set at the Museum of the Moving Image, and lots of Montreal poems. I just finished the first draft of the manuscript and am happily entering revision land.


And a link for a chewy review of Skin Shift over at Lambda Literary by the fabulous Jerome Murphy.


Happy National Poetry Month!
