Matthew Thorburn, Poet - Author of Dear Almost
Thank you to the editors of Image for including my poem "Relic" in their new issue. You can read it online here. "Relic" is part of a new manuscript I'm working on called Never Going Back Again.
Allison Benis White’s prose poems evoke a world of loss and wonder, in which the mysteries of our daily lives are illuminated as a story that finds its shape in the telling. Meeting her and picking up a copy of her new book, Please Bury Me in This, was one of the highlights of this year's AWP Conference for me. Recently, I had the chance to ask her a few questions about her haunting new book for the Ploughshares blog.
I’m deeply grateful to the Bronx Council on the Arts for awarding me a 2017 BRIO Fellowship. “BRIO” stands for “Bronx Recognizes Its Own.” Each year, the BCA awards fellowships to 25 Bronx artists. The Bronx is the only borough in New York City to provide this kind of ongoing award for artists. Click here to see all of this year's recipients.
