Meet the Press: Nin Andrews interviewed me for the Best American Poetry blog

Nin Andrews conducts an ongoing series of small press publisher/editor interviews for the Best American Poetry blog and she kindly invited me to participate.

She and I talked about how I came to be an editor and poet, how Bloof Books came to be, and what I really love about working with poets, making books together. I also chose a couple of poems from Bloof poets Jennifer L. Knox and Elisabeth Workman.

Read the interview here.

Check the archives here, for other interviews in the series, including Matthew Zapruder of Wave, Janet Holmes of Ahsahta, Gabriel Fried of Persea, Ed Ochester of the Pitt Poetry Series, and others. (I'm not through reading them all yet.)

On her blog (where she often posts great single-panel comix!), Nin also posted this drawing of me. I like it better than the photo.
