It’s springtime and we all wanna be re-birthed fair, smart, and wild. So we’ve asked Hannah, Jane, and Rodney to do that for us.
As always, everyone is welcome.
Hannah Gamble is working on her second book of poems. Her work has appeared in or is forthcoming from American Poetry Review, The Believer, POETRY, Black Warrior Review, Court Green, and a chapbook from coldfront magazine, featuring new work from authors of readers’ favorite poetry collections of 2012. She lives in Chicago, where she is developing an arts-based learning workshop at the Museum of Science and Industry for a team of innovators seeking to address the city’s problem of urban nutrition.
Jane Gregory is from Tucson, Arizona and lives in Berkeley, California. Her first book, My Enemies, was published by The Song Cave last year.
Rodney Koeneke‘s latest collection, Etruria, is just out from Wave Books. He’s also the author of Musee Mechanique (BlazeVOX, 2006) and Rouge State (Pavement Saw, 2003), with a new chapbook from Hooke Press arriving this Fall. An early member of the Flarf collective, he participated in Poets Theater and Neo-Benshi events in the Bay Area until moving to Portland in 2006, where he teaches British and World History at Portland State University.
