It May Be Autumn, But….

There’s new content on my new blog, The Spring Ghazals!  In case you don’t know, this blog is dedicated to examining the publishing process of my book of recent poems (also called The Spring Ghazals.)  The book should be available in the next week to 10 days—stay tuned for more info.

On the The Spring Ghazals blog, I’ll look not only at the nuts & bolts of the publishing process, but also at the book’s background &, by extension, my own poetic background & uneasy relationship with the mainstream of contemporary poetry—what my friend B.N. & I have referred to as “poebiz” for the past 25 years.   Links for yesterday's & today's posts are here & here.

Hope to see you there—& happy Saturday, all!
