Check out Jameson Currier's wonderful review of Conquering Venus at the Out In Print blog. I also must thank Justin Evans for the insightful interview he has posted with me on his blog. He asked some really great questions about poetics, craft and inspiration. Cheers, Justin.


Hope it's great! I'll be grading papers and watching the World Series.

FANTASTIC readings on both Wednesday and Thursday, Coll!
I'm updating my blog right now, and of course, will link to Facebook, too!
Really enjoyed OUTWRITE BOOKS on Thursday night(You and Reggie were sublime, as were Cleo, Michael and Jim!), and was honored to host on Wednesday at CHARIS BOOKS AND MORE.
