I’m honored that the Journal of the Mississippi State Medical Association has reprinted several more of the poems from Coronary in its recent issues, poems called “Donor” and “Cough.” My thanks to the editors, as always.
The New Orleans Advocate has a wonderful writeup of the Ebb and Flow residencies at A Studio in the Woods, which have been running for the past three years. It’s an honor to be mentioned, especially in the company of such remarkable and talented artists. Next year the Studio will be offering residencies to Tulane faculty and graduate students for the first time; details are available on the Studio website.
For those in the Hattiesburg area, or anywhere within spittin’ distance, this weekend (May 2-3) USM is hosting the Moorman Symposium on Poetry, with a special focus on the relationship between the poetry of the New York School and the South — a fascinating topic, and with a list of speakers including David Lehman, Angela Ball, David Kirby, Billy Collins, Denise Duhamel, and Barbara Hamby, there’s nowhere else in the Gulf South for poets or poetry lovers to be. The symposium is, remarkably, free and open to the public; more information is available at the USM website.
