New York City finally got hit with all the snow the rest of the East Coast has been dealing with. I had to teach my Eng 101 course today but then the school closed for its afternoon classes, so after I had two student conferences I headed home to enjoy a grilled cheese and some coffee.
The weather is the perfect complement to the new Winter 2009/2010 issue of Free Verse which contains a special spotlight on New England poets edited by Chris Tonelli. I'm thrilled to say I have two excerpts from a couple of longer poems. I'm also happy to be in the company of two of my manuscript workshoppers- Dan Magers & Kaveh Bassiri & the my other "crew" ColdFront Mag is well represented too with poems by John Deming, Jackie Clark and DJ Dolack. There's a ton of other great poets and essays to be read as well so head on over and check it out here.
