My poem, “Other Fathers”, has been named one of ten finalists for the Maine Postmark Contest. The top five poets will be invited to read their poems at the Belfast Poetry Festival on October 19th, and the first prize winner will receive $100 and publication in The Maine Review. Winners should be announced later this month. Good luck to all finalists!
My novel, The Hole in the Hand, was named as a Semi-Finalist for the YesYes Books Open Reading Period in Fiction. Congratulations to all the semi-finalists! Winners will be announced at the beginning of December.

My interview with the students of ENG 422 at Salem State University about The Paper Coast was just published in Red Skies, the online literary magazine of Salem State. The interview was a lot of fun, and I don’t think I’ve ever answered so many questions about myself, to say nothing of my writing, at one time! If you’re interested in hearing me talk about Naropa University, Kiese Lamon, Borges, basketball, and biscuits, check it out!
After my visit a couple weeks ago to Alexandria Peary’s Fiction Workshop at Salem State, I received these Thank You notes in the mail. Such a thoughtful gesture. The interview will appear in Salem State’s Red Skies, which should be available in a few weeks.
