Shanna Compton


New poems & upcoming readings


A couple of poems appear in the new issue of Barrelhouse, and you can read one of them online here, including annotations about how the poem changed between the first and final drafts:
The Cheating of the Fancy

A longish serial poem is up at Ink Node too:
The Deeps

During the month of April, I will be posting poem drafts every day at the Bloof Blog with a bunch of other poets.


On April 6-7, I will be at the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair, running the table for Bloof Books and also giving a reading on Saturday:
7 @ 7 @ 7: mIEKAL aND, Robin Brox, Shanna Compton, Christopher Fritton, David Hadbawnik, Michael Sikkema & Jen Tynes

On April 27, I will be reading at this with Becca Klaver, Marisa Crawford & Dan Magers, to celebrate the release of new chapbooks by Becca & Marisa:
Chapbook Release Party at Greenpoint Heights, Brooklyn

And in May, I'm doing two readings in Georgia:
