Darrell Bourque on the Radio

Former poet laureate of Louisiana Darrell Bourque will be reading the poems from Vision/Verse 3 on the KRVS (Lafayette-Lake Charles) poetry segment, "From the Poet's Bookshelf" which airs on Thursdays at around 3:30pm (can be 3:20 to 3:35 or so---they fit the segment into other programming) on 88.7 FM. The next series will begin with a couple of poems by Catharine Savage Brosman from a new work scheduled for release from LSU Press, and then the next 10 weeks will feature the poems from this year's Vision Verse project.

Be sure to tune in if you live in the Lake Charles or Lafayette areas.

New Publications

I have had a few new publications recently. My poem "Caernarvon, LA: 1927" will be in the new issue of Crab Orchard Review. Their American South issue in which the poem appears will be out in September.

Next month I will have two poems appearing in Trigger, which is a new publication that explores art/writing collaborations. The issue will have my poem "Rayville, 1927" and a brand new poem written specifically for this project called "Traiteur Nocturne." "Traiteur Nocturne" was written in response to Ryan de la Hoz's artwork.

Also, the newest issue of The Louisiana Review is out now and has my poem "Crop Dusting: Late Season."
