I just found out the above lineup for a reading I'm happily included in next month (during AWP, for those who are going.) I'm floored to see so many names of poets on that list who I've been reading for years and admiring the work of, and I can't wait to hear what they're writing. I would single out some folks, but I'd end up just listing the whole list again...
This will also be the first reading from The All-Purpose Magical Tent about which Terrance Hayes has written,
"Whoa… Some poets labor for years — or record the music of aviaries and asylums—in search of a syntax this particular,this peculiar. Some poets dream of inventing and reinventing the kinds of forms we find here".
Hope to see some of you there! More news soon (and also more non-book related posts...once I'm out from under the PhD. workload for a brief moment. About to go lecture on Emily Dickinson - very excited.)
