We’ve packed up the boxes of books and buttons, and look forward to bringing a whole lot of Akron to AWP LA. California is my birth state, and I always find it both strange and welcoming. Below please find this year’s dance card.
I’ll be spending most of the days representing the University of Akron Press at table #313 in the bookfair. Stop on by to check out our beautiful new books. Also, I’ll be reading from Small Enterprise and signing copies, thanks to Black Lawrence Press. And finally, please consider checking out our awesome UA Press offsite event with Cleveland State University Poetry Center and Rescue Press.

Safe travels to California, convention-goers! To the many folks who showed their support for the UA Press during our rather dramatic summer, please stop by table 313 to get your POETRY LIVES button, along with our sincere thanks.
What’s even more awesome than a crisp (yet not too crisp) Friday in October? A crisp Friday in October with a poem on Verse Daily! Many thanks to Verse Daily for featuring “Ordinary Citizens,” from Small Enterprise.
Like many of my poems in this book, “Ordinary Citizens” finds its beginnings in one (or many) of the odd jobs I had while going to school. Thank you for taking a look!
I’m giving away four signed copies of Small Enterprise over at Goodreads. Three more days to enter!
So far October is bringing new poems and student work and beautiful autumn Ohio leaves.
Thanks for checking out the giveaway. Happy Fall to all!
After a long day of teaching, I didn’t expect this box on my doorstep, and for a moment I thought I should wait until morning to unbox Small Enterprise, but then realized I’d be up all night wondering what she looked like. I have so much gratitude to Black Lawrence Press, photographer Heidi Thoenen, and many more folks. But for this morning, I just want to share two photos welcoming my 4th book to the world.
My love for Black Lawrence Press is eternal, and what’s even more awesome? They’ve now added the “peek inside” feature for titles over at SPD. Try a free sample of A Sunny Place with Adequate Water (or O Holy Insurgency, or Saint Monica), over at the SPD site.
