I’m thrilled to announce that Chile’s Pez Espirale has just published a 20-page excerpt of my a, A Novel in a beautiful hand-bound edition. Pez Espirale previously published my NO MÁS POESÍA (as translated by Carlos Soto Román) in a lush and thoughtful edition — and they have created this chapbook with similar thoughtfulness. Order your copy today!

i’m honoured to have contributed to 101 Words for Edwin Morgan: A Centenary Poster of 101 One Word Poems. 101 poets, artists, publishers, editors and researchers were invited to send a word or a one word poem for Edwin Morgan on the occasion of his centenary. This poster is published on what would have been his 101st birthday, 27 April 2021.

Joe Devlin interviews me for his website Nuts and Bolts:

“limitations and constraints force a writer to solve problems that they wouldn’t have created otherwise, to build new pathways, new furrows in fields of their practice.”

Very excited for the next issue of Quill & Quire and the profile of Lens Flare (by Rhys Farrell and I) as written by Dani Spinosa — thanks so much!
