In anticipation of Saturday's Book Launch at ModernFormations Gallery for my poetry collection, Past All Traps, Justin Hopper has done a very generous profile (with 4 poems), which you can find here, in which he very much "got it."
In addition, two poems from the collection are featured on The Improvised Life: A Guide to the Daily Possible (poems as gifts: don wentworth’s ‘past all traps’). Thanks very much to Sally Schneider, proprietor of The Improvised Life, and Maureen Rolla for passing the book along to her.
I'm looking forward to Saturday's reading, with Renée Alberts, Nikki Allen, Kris Collins, Jerome Crooks, and Angele Ellis, which should be a gas. More info on the reading may be found on Facebook. Past All Traps may be purchased at the blog (top of the right hand sidebar via Paypal, otherwise known as the top right side of this very page, or from amazon).
