A few updates on the website/world of Amie: new blog on Bishop’s Squatter’s Children, new poem, Camel Meditation, up at Radar Poetry, and information on AWP happenings (and future readings) on my events page.
Thoughts on “Questions of Travel” in which I talk about desire for the millionth time.
In my slow journey through all of Elizabeth Bishop’s poems (I almost wrote “bones” just now, which I kind of like. In a way a poet’s poems are their bones–fossils of the lived life…), I have finally made it to her third collection, Questions of Travel. Check out my piece on “Arrival at Santos.” Here’s to a long wade through this segment of Bishop’s skeleton/body of work.
Can’t wait to teach Multigenre Scavenger Hunt online with The Loft Literary Center this summer!
I finally finished blogging about A Cold Spring! Check out my post on Bishop’s beautiful “shampoo.”
I’m happy to announce I am now offering editorial services on manuscripts and individual poems, in addition to serving as a writing coach/mentor. Let me know how I can help you with your next writing project!
Happy almost 2017! Check out the latest Bishop Blog, on her poem “Invitation to Miss Marianne Moore.” I am only one poem away from finishing A Cold Spring. It’s only taken…five years to get through Bishop’s first two books. I hope she would approve of this tortoise-like approach.
