AWP reading-o-rama!

The AWP conference officially gets underway tomorrow. There will be much rubbing-of-writerly-elbows, hobbing-of-nobs, and eyeballing of purty printed products at the conference itself. In addition, I will be participating is three off-site events:

9 PM Wednesday, February 29th at The Hungry Brain, as part of Salmon Poetry's mega-reading

9 PM Thursday, March 1st at the world-famous Billy Goat Tavern, as part of Heavy Feather Review's "Everything Will Be OK" event

and last, but not least,

7 PM Friday, March 2nd at The Horseshoe for "This Page Intentionally Left Blank," followed by music from The Injured Parties, Khalid Hanifi, and Decoy Prayer Meeting.

Hope to see you at one (or all!) of these to-do's.

Crab Orchard Series in Poetry

I just learned that the manuscript I am currently shopping around, Activities of Daily Living was a semifinalist for this year's Crab Orchard Series in Poetry!

Though I wish it had been selected for publication, I am nonetheless pleased and honored by this distinction.

Fussbudgets discography now available for pre-order; out April 3rd

It's been over twenty years in the making, but collected works by The Fussbudgets are now available for pre-order from Bandcamp!

Pre-ordering gives you instant access to selected tracks, and once the digital editions are released on April 3rd, you'll automatically be emailed a link to download the full albums at that time (some with bonus material). After the albums launch, you may also purchase them via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, MediaNet, eMusic, Zune, Rhapsody, Nokia, and VerveLife.

In the ZB queue are selected demos, early recordings, and live material, but the band's haphazardly-released major works (the albums Hog Wash! and The Naked & the Daft, as well as the EPs Fresh Brood, Headache of the Gods, and sad fearful playful excited -- EPs gathered together in a single package -- constitute the band's oeuvre, for historical purposes).

Refer to individual releases for more background information on the recording, line-ups, and songs.

Hope you enjoy, and thanks for your support!
