APARTMENT POETRY

Say hello to the new issue of Apartment Poetry! I’m thrilled to have five poems in this issue along with my incredible zine neighbors Valerie Hsiung, Kristen Ihns, Paul Cunningham, Kelly Clarke, and Daniel D’Angelo. I love this issue, and Apartment Poetry in general, and am particularly appreciative of editors Jack Snyder & Bryan Koen & Michael Joseph Walsh at Apartment for their valuing and showcasing truly experimental work that is often hard to place. You can read my poems here and the whole issue here.

Apartment Poetry is a project of County Line Press www.countylinepress.com

It is a visible manifestation of thought. Text is embodied.” Read the entire review by Adrienne Dodt at Entropy Magazine here

“Ask the Author” at PANK

A new interview with Shira Dentz, author of SISYPHUSINA, as she elaborates on what poetry is and the intense collaborative process at work in her new book, available from [PANK] Books.

PANK: Your book opens with a letter to your readers about your formal
approach to these poems, including concerns like text weight, placement on the page, etc. One thing that jumped out to me was your note that “form is sculptural.” Do you approach your writing practice like visual art-making, with text standing in for a medium?
