1913Theresa Beckhusen and I are so proud to announce that Corgi Snorkel Press will host The First Annual Chuck Kinder Honorary Chapbook Prize. The fact that we’re announcing this on Chuck’s birthday only sweetens the deal.

A few links I want to share:

1) I’ve got a new Knicks poem up at Sundog Lit for their Games Issue edited by Brian Oliu. Check it out here. Also read work from my girlfriend, Theresa Beckhusen, along with Ian Denning and Sheryl St. Germain among others.

2) Pittsburgh Quarterly gives Last Call in the City of Bridges one of its most positive and complex reviews. Let me know what  you think.

3) Ben Tanzer reviews Last Call over at This Book Will Change Your Life.

4) And finally, Michael Wayne Hampton covers my novel for Necessary Fiction.

Indianapolis and Tuscaloosa Lit Events: SAL PANE CHAPERONES A TRIP TO THE DEEP SOUTH


Ayo. On Friday, I’ll be reading at UIndy’s Wheeler Arts Community in Fountain Square. The event runs from 6 to 9 and free refreshments will be served. There’s transportation from campus for students, and there will be a Q&A after the reading. Also, expect lots of 8 bit music. Everything is going to be great forever!

Then, next weekend, I’m taking a van-load of UIndy students down to the University of Alabama in part of a creative writing student exchange. We’ll all be reading our work (along with Theresa Beckhusen (my co-chaperone/girlfriend), Laura Straub, Brian Oliu, and his students) on Saturday night at the Westervelt Transportation Museum. YOU SHOULD COME TO EVERYTHING.
