The seapunk story has two chapters so far: the Chicago Reader piece declaring the movement,...
On the Matter of Pen and Processing

On the Matter of Pen and Processing

Recently I gave a talk to Catherine Bush's Plenary Class at Humber in Toronto. One of the things I talked about was the way in which my own writing has changed given the methods of composition--and I mean technology.

Adrienne Rich on “Easy Poetry”

Career-minded poets, expending thought and energy on producing a "publishable manuscript," on marketing their wares and their reputations, as young poets are now urged (and even trained) to do, may have little time left over for thinking about the art itself, ancient and contemporary, and why it matters -- the state of the art itself...
