Neglect, Among Other Things...

My, my, how time passes... I haven't posted since October, but it seems like I was just on here. Time runs differently in my head I suppose.

Want some J news? Well, here it is.

Lots of things going on in my poetry universe. Most notably, I will be presenting some of my poems at the 8th annual Louisiana Conference on Language, Literature and Culture, March 5-7 in Lafayette, La. My presentation is titled "'27: A Creative Look at Desire in the Great Mississippi Flood." This will be my first academic presentation of my work, so we'll see how it goes. I am looking forward to it. It's high time I pumped up the CV.

I'll also be in Chicago this year for AWP. I'll probably leave behind most of my clothes in the hotel room, to make room for all the books I'm going to buy. I won't need them in the warm, beautiful south anyway. Snow is for suckers.

There is also a TON of publishing stuff going on with Spec House and the all new Yellow Flag Press, but I won't get into that here. I have other blogs for that.

I did my part, now post some comments so I know you are still out there.

Good luck on the academic presentation. Sounds like an interesting talk.

I agree, snow is for yankees. I'm still wearing short sleeve t-shirts here.

that presentation sounds pretty neat. what's Yellow Flag Press?

J. Bruce Fuller said...

Greg,
Yellow Flag is a new press I'm working on with some other poets from my MFA program. We're going to be doing a bunch of broadsides and chapbooks soon.
