I am the NH State Poet Laureate, 2014-2019. My third book, Be That Empty, was a national poetry bestseller in 2008, and in 2009 Strange Terrain (how to appreciate poetry without “getting” it) came out. Nominated 6 times for the Pushcart, my poems have appeared in many journals and anthologies, including Best American Poetry, Robert Hass’s Poet’s Choice, Spillway, Hotel Amerika, Crazyhorse, and Pleiades, and I have received a fellowship from the NEA and other awards. Another collection, Interval: Poems Based Upon Bach’ Goldberg Variations, won the Nicholas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature and is forthcoming from Schaffner Press.
