According to the Wesleyan Connection, a new $50,000 NEA grant for Wesleyan University Press (congrats!) will generate their new poetry program, which will publish, perhaps, a collected Joseph Ceravolo and a new book by Rae Armantrout. While it's all exciting, we must say--for fans of Ceravolo, who have been waiting decades for this, it's beyond beyond. And "in addition to helping support publication costs, the funding will be used to help authors travel to give readings from their new Wesleyan books."

For now, you can listen to Ceravolo reading at his PennSound page.
