Four Poems from The Knowledge Online

We Wanted to be WritersCheryl Olsen of the We Wanted to be Writers blog is kindly running four poems from The Knowledge, including the eponymous piece itself, on their website. While some of these poems are previously published, most have never been on the web before.

So, if you have been keen to take a peek inside the cover, now’s your chance.

Many thanks to the WW2BW crew for putting these poems in front of their readership.


Books By My Bed (In a Book!)

Best of Books by the Bed #1Eric and Cheryl Olsen of Bright City Books have done a splendid job featuring writers’ favourite books on their We Wanted to be Writers website.

They recently sent me a copy of Best of Books by the Bed #1, wherein my top picks for poetry appear alongside the top picks of twenty-four other writers (many of them graduates of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop). It is a lovely volume to have and peruse, since there is no one I trust more than a writer for recommendations of what to read.

Best of Books by the Bed #1 is available in softcover and as an e-book from the We Wanted to be Writers website.
