Ploughshares Blog Post-Rose Metal Press Interview



Nicelle Davis and I have collaborated on a book of poetry, In The Circus Of You, soon to be published (Spring 2015) by Rose Metal Press. Here is an excerpt from the interview. Rose Metal

We’re publishing a story-in-poems-and-images called In the Circus of You by poet Nicelle Davis and visual artist and animator Cheryl Gross in spring 2015, for example, and we’re very excited about the book itself and all the projects, including short animated films, that they’re putting together around it.

And we’re always open to other interpretations of hybrid and what kinds of genres and modes of expression can be combined and re-conceptualized. One of the most interesting things about publishing hybrid and cross-genre work is seeing the amazing tradition-bending/combining work authors are creating and submitting when we have an open reading period. It’s often beyond what we could have imagined, and that’s exactly why we want the rest of the world’s readers to experience it as well.

Thank you Rose Metal and Ploughshares. We have the poetry video that accompanies the book traveling around the world at the moment.
