This week, we have the pleasure of sharing with you an interview with Michelle Chan Brown, author of Double Agent, which won the 2011 Kore First Book Award for Poetry. Double Agent is a fascinating book, described by Laura Kasischke as a collection of poems that "takes us on journeys across continents by way of hard fact combined with the subtlest of strangeness, the eeriest musicality, and the most startling of shifts and observations."
We are excited to announce that Gazing Grain Press is featured in the Movable Type column in the May/Summer issue of The Writer's Chronicle. We are grateful to the staff at The Writer's Chronicle and AWP, particularly Daniel D'Angelo, who conducted the interview with co-editor Alyse Knorr.
This issue also includes an investigation of villains and villainesses, a look into a writing workshop at a maximum security prison, and plenty of good news for submissions, contests, and residencies.
