Three poets whose work I think is just so great. You will too, if you come and hear them.

Review of The Fluency of Light

I reviewed The Fluency of Light: Coming of Age in a Theatre of Black and White by Aisha Sabatini Sloan. This book surprised, provoked and moved me; I recommend checking it out.

Also, the government

In the department of "doesn't actually address the roots of the problem, but might make some people's lives more possible in the short term", today is a great day to donate to a food bank (because WIC is affected) and/or veterans' services (because the VA is affected). Donating to a national park, when the National Park Service's website is back up (it's down now because of the shutdown) would also be a good idea.

Links are to RI institutions because that's where I am (and where I donated), but searching for "[your state] food bank" or "[your state] veterans' services" should get you there.

New work in N/A

The new issue of N/A is up, and it's full of good work by Gina Abelkop, Matt Henriksen, Rae Armantrout, Michelle Detorie and more (including me). Go look!
