Thanks to Heavy Feather Review for the chance to talk poetry with J.G. McClure. Our “collaborative conversation”—a sort of double-interview—was a fun opportunity to talk about putting together poetry books—in my case, The Grace of Distance, and in his, The Fire Lit and Nearing, his debut collection.
I hope you’ll check out the conversation here.
Thanks so much to the editors of The Midnight Oil for taking two poems--"The Last Train" and "Where She Went"--for their upcoming issue.
You can read the summer issue here.
Read Poetry includes The Grace of Distance among its top poetry new releases for August!
If you haven't picked up a copy already, I hope you'll follow their good advice and take a look.
Thanks so much to the editors of Verse Daily for featuring "The Stag" as today's poem. And thank you to editor Rhett Iseman Trull for first publishing this poem in Cave Wall.
This poem is from a new manuscript I've been working on - a sequence of poems that detail the experiences of a teenage boy in a time of war and just after.
