Mid-Week Field Notes

Three quick things this week:

  1. Serendipity strikes again. I mentioned Erica Goss‘s newsletter last week and bought a book from Dos Madros Press. The press was promoting the work of Prague poet Lucien Zell. I wondered: Was that the ex-pat poet who recited his poetry on Neruda Street my first full day in Prague in 2011? I looked up his bio, and sure enough, same guy. I’d never known his name. We exchanged emails and find we have some things in common, including writing about the Holocaust.
  2. My Artist Date this week started with a two-hour celebration of CavanKerry Press‘s twentieth anniversary. I was inspired by the press’s fine poets and prose authors. I’m continuing my “refilling the well” with a public (virtual) reading with Sewanee Writers Conference Reading Series Thursday night.
  3. As soon as I finish grading final papers, exams, and projects, I’m launching into Revision Land to work on an academic paper, a picture book bio (in sestinas!), and a bio in verse.

Happy Chanukah!
