I am thrilled to be able to tell you that in October Wayne State University Press will release my first full-length collection of poems A Fine Canopy as part of their Made in Michigan Series. Please watch this space–and the Wayne State University Press website–for updates about the book’s release and events celebrating its publication. You can find new interviews and readings by clicking here. Thank you Annie Martin–and everyone at WSU P–for taking in my poems. It has been a wild ride of a year thus far and your confidence in my work helps me keep my seat.
This spectacular cover was designed by Katrina Noble using a painting by Nancy Mitchnick. I discovered Ocean View in a a book of Nancy’s work published by MOCAD. I fell in love with the paintings she has made since moving back to Detroit after being away for many many years, and she has graciously given us permission to use one of my favorites.
