The Quotidian Bee
I'll be at the Bloof Books bookfair table Thursday through Saturday, for Philalalia.
And this event Friday night.
Carmelo Valone interviewed me for the CalArts Tiny Press Practices blog (for a book arts–focused class taught by Jen Hofer). We talked about the Bloof Books series of handmade poetry chapbooks, including recent ones by Jackie Clark and Daniel Borzutzky, as well as humor, politics, how small presses create space for new voices, and the first chapbook I bought for my personal stash in Austin, TX in the mid 90s.
