Regarding the post below, that of the new Otoliths coming out (the e-edition), well, it came out sooner than I thought it would, with new work from many poets, some older work by me, as well as one piece from Prefab Eulogies. Again, many thanks to Mark Young, amazing and tireless editor. The journal will also be available in print in the coming weeks (also in two installments). From Mark:
Otoliths rounds out its fourth year with another issue that maintains the journal's reputation for excellent offerings across a variety of disciplines & styles.

Just noticed that Jesse Morse and Allison Cobb will be reading for the Spare Room Series in Portland Feb 7. I idiotically missed Kyle Schelsinger, Charles Alexander, and Joel Bettridge, which having heard Charles and Joel read before, and knowing Kyle's work quite well, I know would have been a stellar night. Damn, I was in Detroit of all places, tho didn't know these 3 were reading regardless. Well, I hope to be able to get away from the teaching cycle for a night to hear Morse and Cobb, two fantastic poets. For details on the upcoming readings, work from Kyle, Charles, & Joel, and more, visit Spare Room here.
More on our first winter PRESS event, readings/workshops from Jules Boykoff & Kaia Sand soon-- as soon as Elizabeth Williamson gets back to me with some of the student workshop images...
