My essay, “The Language of Trees,” was included in Elemental: A Collection of Michigan Creative Nonfiction, edited by Anne-Marie Oomen, and published by Wayne State University Press. We just learned that it has received a Michigan Notable Book Award for 2018. We are very happy!
I’m teaching The Practice of Poetry for Interlochen College of Creative Arts online from February 4-March 3, 2019.
My favorite poetry experience of the last year: Memorial: A Version of Homer’s Iliad, by Alice Oswald. Andy sent it to me this summer after I inquired about what was in his back pocket and it was everything I want in a book. Moving, sonic, affecting, powerful.
