Interview / Review / Woo-hoo!

Two bits of self-promotion.

1) Donna Vorreyer, at Put Words Together. Make Meaning., has included me in her charming series in which she gives poets fill-in-the-blank sentences to complete (a la Mad Libs). Donna's questions are quirkier (and hence more revealing) than other interviews you'll read. Check out her entire series, in which each poet gets a different set of unusual sentences to complete.

2) Joshua Hjalmer Lind, editor of Hartskill Review, reviewed Mendeleev's Mandala for the Fall 2015 issue. He called me (via my work) "as playful and devastating as John Donne."

Wow. Just wow. I never expected that comparison, one I'm not worthy of . Wow.

Well that was fun! Fill in the blank interviews are a nice alternative to the dry Q & A.

Congratulations on your recent rush of attention and success. :)

Thanks, Drew. Donna Vorreyer certainly has a creative playful take on the interview genre--one we can agree is a breath of fresh air!
