If you're interested in learning more about the craft of poetry and you live on the southside of Atlanta, you might want to sign up for my fall workshop at the Peachtree City Library on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is a generative workshop and we'll specifically be discussing and writing confessional and prose poetry. More details and registration information at this link.
The reissue of Better To Travel is taking a little bit longer than expected. It was supposed to be ready for the Decatur Book Festival, but it's now looking like October. There will definitely be copies available during the 11th annual Voices Carry reading on Nov. 30. And you might want to mark that date on your calendar since it's going to be a fantastic lineup: Theresa Davis, Michelle Castleberry, Melisa Cahnmann-Taylor and Cecilia Woloch. You'll be sick of turkey and relatives by then, so come out to the Decatur Library to hear these fine poets.
