Poetry Saturday

The wonderful 32 Poems magazine has featured five of my favorite poetry collections on its blog today. Editor Deborah Ager is posting poet's favorite books everyday in April in honor of National Poetry Month. Check 'em out!

Congrats to my pal Rupert Fike on his forthcoming collection Lotus Buffet from Brick Road Poetry Press. You can pre-order the book and download a sample of the fantastic poetry at this link.

I am thrilled to have a poem in the new anthology, Don't Blame the Ugly Mug, which was edited by Ben Trigg and Steve Ramirez, the curators of the the Two Idiots Peddling Poetry reading at the Ugly Mug in Orange, CA. The anthology features 10 years of featured poets who have graced the stage (I read with Cecilia Woloch in 2004). You can order a copy via PayPal at this link!

Very excited to hear that the brilliant Sarah Maclay has a new collection, Music for the Black Room, out from University of Tampa Press. Her debut collection, Whore, is one of my favorite contemporary collections.

The online anthology, Poems of Solidarity for Haiti, has been downloaded more than 2,000 times! I helped select the winning poems in the contest and interviewed winner, M. Ayodele Heath. You can download the anthology at this link.
