May is NOT National Poetry Month

Thank you for reading our drafts of April poems. I made 23 of them and now they all must be edited. Jason made 7 lovely little ditties. I shall write more things soon. If you are wondering how the tour wrapped up, here's a little recap.

Also, since I've been selected as a judge for the 2013 National Book Award, all I am doing (aside from freelance work) is reading. It's really wonderful, but also overwhelming. It requires a lot of space and time and quiet. But the the books are just a joy to spend time with. 

Also, I have joined the faculty for the 2014 Low-Residency MFA Latin America for the Queens University of Charlotte which means you should join us. 

Sending love from sunny California where life is nice and slow and we are doing our work and counting our blessings and eating too many popsicles.
