AWP is Not for Me (This Year)

I won't be at AWP this year in Washington, D.C., but my latest book will. Mendeleev's Mandala will be at the Mayapple Press Table (SPD/CLMP 616/618). If you have a chance to visit it, please do. Wish I could be there, but in fact, I have never been to an AWP. Maybe next year?

The Craigo Stamp of Approval

Today Mendeleev's Mandala got poet Karen Craigo's stamp of approval over at her blog Better View of the Moon. Craigo's popular blog is committed this year to festooning (or appreciating, as she calls it) a book of poetry a day. Yes, you read that right--a. book. a. day. So far this year she has already covered the books of poets such as Sarah Eliza Johnson, Athena Kildegaard, Karen Skolfield,  Nicole Rollender, and so many more. How many more? Well, I mentioned 4 plus me, that makes five, and today's the 19th (in America) so 19 less 5 is 14. 14 more. And counting. Hurry! Get over there and catch up before tomorrow's poet is appreciated!

What are you still doing here? Get going!

And thank you, Karen Craigo!
