The Fawn Abyss garnered a positive review in the new August edition of the Washington Independent Review of Books! Reviewer Grace Cavalieri wrote, “There’s a measured authority in every line; and when he talks about the present time there’s a cellular reality, touched with hope, saying what must not be lost.” You can read the full review here.
I’m excited and honored to share the news that my third poetry collection, Catafalque, has won the 2017 Richard Wilbur Award and will be published by the University of Evansville Press later this winter!
I’m delighted that my second poetry collection, The Fawn Abyss, will debut at this year’s AWP conference in Washington, D.C. from February 8th – 11th. The book will be available at the Salmon Poetry booth (#509) throughout the conference, where I’ll have a book signing from 2:30-4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 10th. I’ll also be reading from it at the Salmon Poetry reception later that evening (the details of which you can find here). The Fawn Abyss is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and will be available on the publisher’s website soon.
Though it wasn’t ultimately selected, I’m honored that Catafalque, my third book manuscript, just earned a distinguished mention from Tupelo Press in last summer’s open reading period.
Though it wasn’t ultimately chosen for publication, I’m honored that Catafalque, my third book manuscript, was named a finalist in the Diode Editions Book Contest this fall.
