So much news to tell! First, my poem "Permian Sea" came up over at Split Rock Review. Honored to be included in this gorgeous magazine. Y'all know I love making audio, so I'm happy they asked me to record myself reading the piece. I also love poems about place, so this magazine is perfect.
Also, Spiderweb Salon included me in their National Poetry Month celebration! Check out the poem and prompt I provided for them. This collective is such a gift to our literary community. So happy to know them. They also gave "This is not my first grey hair" a new place to hang out on the internet, so I'm glad about that.
You didn't think I'd make a news post without mentioning Deep Vellum, did you? They also highlighted me and my work for National Poetry Month. So pleased to be described as a Deep Vellum Books favorite; the feeling is so mutual.
I wrapped up my online Poetic Imitation and Innovation course for the Writer's Garret. It was a blast! I had a great group of students. One of them had this super kind thing to say: "Loved the instructor and valued her insightful feedback. The model poems she chose made the imitations challenging. She had a way of emphasizing what was working as well as how to take the poem to the next level. I'd love to study under Logen some more." I'll let y'all know if I have more workshops coming!
I also participated in a fantastic reading called Other People's Poetry. We read the entirety of Adrienne Rich's The Dream of a Common Language. It was such a lovely, powerful experience. D Magazine did this pretty sweet write-up about it. Many thanks to organizer Joe Milazzo for making it all happen.
Happy 5th birthday to Voicemail Poems! The Spring 2017 issue is underway right now. Get ready for my podcast follow-up! I'm really stoked about it.
I've got a reading coming up for Pandora's Box! April 21, 8PM, Deep Vellum Books. Be there! I'll read to you, you'll be surrounded by books and lovely, talented people. It'll be a beautiful thing.
'Til next time. Y'all be good out there.
