visual Romani poetry 01 December 20, 2007: Big in Britain just now, though unknown in America (that should change soon): David Morley's book The Invisible Kings, which I'm halfway through at the moment and entirely happy about. Big British reviews include Tim Liardet's in the Guardian, Jane Yeh's in the TLS (no web version of that review, alas), and Jane Holland's on her blog. Morley's [...] by

Information: 20 Years of Joda December 20, 2007: As a few of us choose go on break from HARRIET (I’m off to the homeland to see my carnal, Texaco Alex), I’d like to end the year with this shout out because Montoya dedicated it “To Rigoberto De Michoacán.” It’s “joda,” with a strong J, as in “joder,” as in“chingar,” as in “twenty years of struggle,” as in “twenty [...] by

Asian American Writers’ Workshop December 20, 2007: Occasionally, I like to visit the Asian American Writers' Workshop website and when possible attend one of its literary events in New York City.

Day one featured Poetry Foundation staff picks. Day two, [...] by

Visual Poetics 04 December 19, 2007: ----------------- "Boiling C" by Kelly Mark ----------------- Kelly Mark is a productive, conceptual artistic, working in a diverse variety of media. She has made art entirely out of stolen butter-knives; she has used pencils to completely overpaint sculptures through the act of drawing; and she has released a CD, recording 1000 planned, but as [...] by

Wednesday Shout Out December 19, 2007: Sometimes simplicity’s the thing, though that doesn’t mean the ideas or motivations behind the poem are simple. I came across this beautiful debut on one of my visits back to Arizona State (Josh Rathkamp’s yet another graduate of that writing program—go Sun Devils!), and I was pleased to discover this distinct voice that has much to say [...] by

Girlstory! December 17, 2007: Last Friday I had the privilege of sitting as one of the guest judges at the final round of the All Girl Poetry Slam. Sponsored by Girlstory, a multi-cultural, multi-generational women’s writing collective (and an organization created out a residency at another important arts organization, Community Word Project), this venue is all about [...] by
