Lisa Birman is one of those people who exudes sensibility, creativity, and originality. I met her about a decade ago, when I began going to Boulder—where she lives—to teach at Naropa University’s Summer Writing Program. Lisa ran the program for many years, and still teaches one of its MFA classes. She comes from…See More

The Sunday Poem: Tani Arness

Tani Arness's poems stay with you. The poet's quiet voice suddenly takes a dramatic turn. I am so pleased to present these three:Exodus These are the names of journeys:wandering, hitch-hiking, homeless, falling in love . . . Leaving requires plagues of frogs, and gnats, cars and gunfire,until staying becomes harder than…See More

The Sunday Poem: Erika Wurth

Posted on February 8, 2015 at 6:00am 3 Comments

I was surprised, one Sunday in September, to hear Erika Wurth read a short story to the rapt audience. She read wonderfully. Nothing surprising about any of it, really. Just that I had heard Erika’s name and noted a number of her readings around town, but had never been able to attend any. She was dynamic…

Was it you who posted the Frida and Diego poem? Stunning! I sent copies to a dozen friends. In fact that poem , which I read on Jon Knudson's blog, was a major reason I tracked down Duke City. The other reason is that if I ever move back to the States, it would be to live in or around Albuquerque.

Thanks for your response to my post about Harrison Ridley. Don't know if you're from Philly and knew of him but, well, he was a beautiful soul.
