This week I’d love to give some shoutouts to some upcoming publications as well as to share some other happenings. Here we go:
- Shoutout to Quintin Collins whose second poetry collection, Claim Tickets for Stolen People (winner of The Journal Charles B. Wheeler Poetry Prize), is forthcoming from Ohio State University Press’ imprint Mad Creek. This collection is available for pre-order here. For more on Collins and his work, check out this feature.
- Shoutout also to John Sibley Williams whose poetry collection, The Drowning House (winner of the 2020 Elixir Press Annual Poetry Award) is also forthcoming and available for pre-order. Check out this past feature to see some of his work.
- Lastly, shoutout to this happening: phenomenal poet Bert Meyers finally has a page on the Poetry Foundation site. This has been a long time coming, even emailed myself at one point to nudge the good folx along to honor and have an online space for his work. Check out this past post (and this one, and this one, haha) on his work to further celebrate his work. I’ve done a few posts on his works and am always down to geek out about it 🙂
That’s all for now. Off to catch my breath as life keeps spinning forward. Stay safe, y’all!
