The Lumière Reader, I was lucky enough to be able to speak about Fiddlehead, tradition, repetition, and joy with two dear friends Joan Fleming and Lee Posna. Joan asked some harrowing questions, the kind that require some serious soul-work before you can responsibly answer. Definitely one of the richest poetics exchanges I have had.

I am pleased to announce that my chapbook, Fiddlehead, is now available for purchase thanks to the tireless efforts of Chris Holdaway and Samuel Carey at Compound Press. My Q&A with Chris about the book's composition is also up on the site. Therein we speak about repetition, religion, and expatriation, matters equally close to my heart these days.
Compound and its affiliated journal, Minarets, are giving voice to a new generation of innovative New Zealand-based poets, among them Ross Brighton, Ya-Wen Ho, Joan Fleming, and Lee Posna (whose chapbook, Arboretum, launched simultaneously with mine). I am humbled to be in such company and hope you'll take a look at what we're on about over here.
