Joshua Nguyen for WAN Poetry


“My mother doesn’t write recipes, / she just knows. // Braised pork and eggs, / rice cleaned thoroughly.” Joshua Nguyen, author of the chapbook, American Lục Bát for My Mother (Bull City Press, 2021), reads two poems in this video for the Write About Now Poetry reading series in Houston.

A Q&A with Nate Marshall by Randall is featured in the September/October issue of Poets & Writers Magazine
