As part of a new regular feature on the Accents Blog, we want to keep our readers up to date on the status of our poets. Today, we’re covering the author of our newest full-length book, Square Feet, Lori A. May.
- The blog for Wilkes University’s Creative Writing program, The Write Life, recently interviewed may about Square Feet. For a taste, May said about writing:
- Kim Loomis-Bennett of Collage: Book Reviews covered Square Feet, saying, “In the style of William Carlos Williams’s ‘The Red Wheelbarrow,’ May hones the collection’s brief moments into homages of daily life.” Wow.
- May will be at AWP for an off-site reading for Pirene’s Fountain literary journal.
- Friday February 28, 6-9pm at East Olive Way Starbucks in Seattle, Washington
- May will be reading with Joy Gaines-Friedler in Ann Arbor, Michigan
- Monday March 17, 7pm at Literati Bookstore
- 1966 Journal‘s spring 2014 issue features a Lori A. May essay titled “After the Winds Die Down”.
- And last but not least, May recently published an the essay “AWP: An Opportunity to Exercise Literary Citizenship” for The Write Life.
