2022–25 Cora A. Babcock Chair in English at Hartwick College
I am thrilled and honored to announced that for the next three years (2022–25), I will be the Cora A. Babcock Chair in English at Hartwick College. This position will support continued work on my current scholarly book project, Too Big to Read: The Megatext in the Twenty-First Century, the publication of my just completed poetry manuscript, Postrock, and my next two books of poetry, 2018–202X: Sonnets and Synthwave.
For a glimpse into this work in progress, see my recent essay, “‘Is an Archive Enough?’: Megatextual Debris in the Work of Rachel Blau DuPlessis,” and some select poem(s) from Postrock and from 2018–202X: Sonnets.
I also get to host an annual Babcock Lecture for the duration of the appointment [stay tuned].
“c o n t e m p o r a n e i t y,” “Silence,” and “Blason IV” in Version (9) Magazine
I’m delighted to have “c o n t e m p o r a n e i t y,” “Silence,” and “Blason IV,” poems from my current project, Postrock, in the first issue of Version (9) (Summer 2021), a magazine exploring theory in contemporary poetry.
“Blason I,” “Blason II,” and “Blason III” in The Second Chance Anthology
“Blason I,” “Blason II,” and “Blason III,” poems from my current ongoing project, Postrock, have been republished in The Second Chance Anthology, which will appear from Variant Literature on August 1, 2020. (Order it here; read it here.) The anthology features “work that has been pulled, withdrawn, [or] removed without notice from” a number of different publications. I’m especially thankful to Tyler Pufpaff and the editors of Variant Literature for finding a new home for the orphaned writing of so many great writers.

Two more poems from my new project, “Meditations at Oneonta” and “Humid Figures and a Handful of Dust,” are in Pamenar Online Magazine. Honored to have these in this excellent and supportive international journal. I also recorded “Meditations at Oneonta”; you can listen to it here.
