Poetry news from Asphalt Sky

Something borrowed for day three of the Freedom to Marry Week blog carnival hosted at The OTHER mother.

My news is borrowed from Jessica Fox Wilson, editor of Asphalt Sky, poet, and the author of 9 t0 5 Poet. Jo Hemmant is also editor of Asphalt Sky. She has written a wonderful essay on the workings of her creative mind and her beginnings as a writer in her essay, Beginnings, which is included in Issue 1 of Asphalt Sky.

Jessica has just announced that her second issue has gone live. You can read it here.

She has included a poem I wrote, called At dusk they fly, a surreal look at Ophelia and staying alive.

Holly Dunlap has two poems in this issue, Women’s Work and Raw Honey. I had the pleasure of meeting Holly in person last night at Elizabeth Alexander’s reading at Emory University, in Atlanta.

You can also read poems by Nathan Moore, Ken Head, and others.

    Excellent! I am heading over to read your poem, and Holly’s and Nathan’s and the essay. And to link it as news at RWP!

    I’m envious you got to meet Holly. Nice!
