extended hiatus

Due to expanded commitments to my small press, I've been forced to cut down on some other projects. I would be delighted if someone else came forward to carry on this blog. Meanwhile, I hope some of the links and contacts herein are of some use.



Pam Brown, Ron Silliman, Magdalena Zurawski

Sunday, October 19, 4PM: Robin's Bookstore (108 S 13th St, Philadelphia) presents poets Pam Brown, Ron Silliman and Magdalena Zurawski.

Pam Brown lives in Australia and is co-editor of Jacket magazine. She has published many books and chapbooks including Text thing (Little Esther Books, 2002) and Dear Deliria (Salt Publishing, 2003) which was awarded the New South Wales Premier's Prize for Poetry in 2004. She collaborated with Seattle-based Egyptian poet Maged Zaher on a collection of poems called farout library software (Tinfish Press, 2007). Her most recent book, True Thoughts, was published by Salt Publishing in September 2008. Her next collection, Authentic Local, is forthcoming from Papertiger Media in 2009.

Ron Silliman's long awaited collection The Alphabet will be available for sale and for signing. He is the author or editor of twenty-six books of poetry and criticism, among them The Age of Huts (compleat), Tjanting, ABC, Demo to Ink, Paradise, R, What, Woundwood, and the memoir Under Albany. He edited the landmark poetry anthology In the American Tree, and he has received a Pew Fellowship in the Arts, two Fellowships from the National Endowment of the Arts, and three arts commission grants from the state arts councils of California and Pennsylvania. His widely read Silliman's Blog, a daily journal devoted to contemporary poetry and poetics, has become a major force in online literary criticism.

Her work has been published in American Poet: The Journal of the Academy of American Poets, The Poetry Project Newsletter, Rattapallax, Talisman, and other magazines.
