After a few months off the radar, I’m thrilled to share some news that has been brewing in secret since the beginning of the year. Am delighted to say that this fall, Antenna, the arts catalyst in New Orleans, will be publishing my next poetry collection, Ecotone. It’s hard to believe — this book has been six years in the making, starting with the first version of the manuscript written at A Studio in the Woods back in 2011 (!) – but as part of their ongoing series of inter-arts collaborations, Antenna will be bringing a selection of these poems out in a joint edition featuring the work of the painter Myrtle von Damitz.
I could not be more excited — Myrtle’s work is extraordinary, gorgeous and lush and mysterious and surreal, and to my mind is the real highlight of the book. I’m humbled and honored to be able to work with her and with Antenna. More details to come soon, including excerpts and a look at the cover, but for now, we’re looking forward to a launch on September 14 at the Antenna Gallery.
My thanks to Antenna, to A Studio in the Woods, to Myrtle, and to all readers and lovers of poetry and painting. Hope to see everyone in September!
