Congratulations to Ocean Vuong for winning the 2012 Stanley Kunitz Poetry Prize. I love when a poet actually deserving of a prize wins one.
I blurbed the forthcoming poetry anthology called Among the Leaves, which is a collection of Midwestern gay poets edited by Raymond Luczak. Contributors include Brent Goodman, Stephen S. Mills, Gregg Shapiro, Jim Fritscher, Christopher Hennessy, William Reichard, Scott Wiggerman and many more. It's a great collection.
I've picked the cover art for my short story collection, Kiss Shot.
