This THERMOS Keeps It Hot

The very cool literary magazine THERMOS (co-edited by talented poet/dancer/coffee-drinker Zach Savich) now has a blog! Most recent features are an interview with Caryl Pagel and a poem by me.


Get it while it’s steamy. Careful you don’t burn your tongue.


Film Dance Society

Tonight is the inaugural meeting of the Northampton Film Dance Society. We will be learning this dance from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1964 New Wave classic Bande à part:

Come by the Forbes Library Community Room from 7-9pm and dance with us!

Weekend Reading: Ghostly Generations of the Long Forgotten Dead

Come to a reading tomorrow night (Sunday, July 12) at 5pm at the Porter-Phelps-Huntington Museum—an 18th century historic house in Hadley, MA.


I will be reading new poems along with other MFA poets & writers Miranda Dennis, Luke Phelan, Henk Rossouw, and Matt Suss. The reading will center around the themes of history, family, and memory. Tomorrow afternoon promises to be particularly lovely and we’ll be reading on the back veranda. It’s free and refreshments will be served!

(Also, check out this feature in the Amherst Bulletin about the event in which I’m quoted.)

Giant Sale!

Tonight is the grand opening for Giant Sale—a community art market organized by my friends Sara Blaylock and Rachel Glaser at the APE Gallery on 126 Main Street in Northampton


Tonight’s event will feature local celebrities, affordable art, small press books, and free beer. The show/bazaar will be up through July 29 and future special events include The 50 Greatest Ladies and Gentlemen (a play by Missoula Oblangata) on July 21, as well as The Handsome Truants in concert and a screening of the film Blondes in the Jungle on July 25.

Drunken Boat Issue 10

The new issue of Drunken Boat just went live! And four of my poems are in it! I am thrilled to be one of the hundred contemporary poets featured in their 10th anniversary issue, and to be included in the good company of Nancy Kuhl and Elizabeth Willis—poets and women whom I greatly admire—among others.


If you’re in NYC this Friday you should go to the issue’s launch party at the Soho20 Gallery from 6-8pm. I wish that I could be there, but instead I will be at the Giant Sale Grand Opening in Northampton. (More posts about that to follow!)
