Perpetuation of the Species: Poets Respond

Rattle has a weekly feature in which a poet writes about a current event. This week the Poets Respond poem is my brand spanking new poem about the refugee crisis.

It's nerve-wracking to write a poem on Friday and submit it 15 minutes before the midnight deadline, and then have it appear on Sunday. But I do hope you read the poem, and perhaps respond yourself to Poets Respond.

Thanks to Tim Green and Rattle for giving my newest poem a home. It's heart-breaking that the refugees aren't able to get a new home so readily.

New Review: Mendeleev's Mandala

"We know from the first few lines, from the poet’s first remarkable observations, that this is not your grandad’s book of verse." Wow! Thanks to Arthur McMaster at Poets' Quarterly for this beautiful and thoughtful review of Mendeleev's Mandala.

Tuck Yourself In with Naugatuck River Review

It's getting cooler here, especially in the evenings, and it's nice to tuck yourself into bed in the evening with some reading. May I suggest the recent issue of Naugatuck River Review, a journal of narrative poetry that includes in its latest issue work by me. I wish I knew who else's work was included, but my contributor copy hasn't arrived yet, so I don't know. But there have been sightings of the journal out in the wild, so any day now!

Thanks to editor Lori Desrosiers.

Riddle. Mystery. Enigma.

Australia's Radiotonic has just done a podcast on code-breaking, puzzle-making, metaphors, Ada Lovelace, the difference between poetry and coding. All the things I love! It's called Riddle. Mystery, Enigma. 

Love love love love love this. The best thing I've listened to in a long time!

Mendeleev at the Strand!!!

Poet Sarah J. Sloat of the witty and charming blog The Rain in My Purse sighted Mendeleev's Mandala in the wild--at  New York's famed Strand Bookstore! And she tamed it and brought it home with her. A win on both accounts! Thanks, Sarah J. Sloat, for this picture taken before your daring take down of my book!

And here's where you can get Sarah J. Sloat's book Inksuite. I purchased my copy the timid way, via the internet, and you can too. Not everyone can be as daring as Sarah J. Sloat.

Mendeleev's Cup Runneth Over

Two in one day! Another review of Mendeleev's Mandala, by Margaret Stawowy at Up the Staircase Quarterly

Stawowy writes, "Goodfellow presents poems of disquietude using language that is, in turn, commonplace and precise, often with startling implications. Unassuming and familiar, one senses integrity in her work that never draws attention to her apparent gifts."

I'm so happy and so lucky to have had so much support for Mendeleev's Mandala. Thank you, Margaret and all!

Poetry Matters: Mendeleev

The insatiably curious Nancy Chen Long has reviewed Mendeleev's Mandala for the blog Poetry Matters, and I have to say this: I have never had work reviewed this deeply, this exposingly (yes, spell check, I know that isn't at word), and it is simultaneously thrilling and terrifying. If you want to know more about Mendeleev's Mandala and its construction than I ever meant anyone to realize, this is the review to read.

Also, check out Nancy's own poems, In fact, listen to Nancy read one, "but so beautiful, yes?" at Rhino.
