I am the NH State Poet Laureate, 2014-2019. My newest collection (2015), Interval: Poems Based Upon Bach’ Goldberg Variations, won the Nicholas Schaffner Award for Music in Literature. My third book, Be That Empty, was a national poetry bestseller, and I'm also the author of Strange Terrain (how to appreciate poetry without necessarily “getting” it). Nominated 7 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 National Endowment for the Arts and other awards.
