Nice Review of the 20th Anniversary FUGUE Issue

February 12, 2011

Nice coverage of the 20th Anniversary issue of FUGUE over at The Quivering Pen. My essay, “Why I Stay,” gets a generous shout-out. Check it out. Then head over to FUGUE and order a copy. You know you want to.

Pushcart Prize Special Mention

February 12, 2011

My essay, “Growing Up Superfund,” which appeared in Columbia: A Journal of Art & Literature, has been given the Special Mention nod in the most recent Pushcart Prize anthology. This is my fourth special mention, and in 2009, I was lucky enough to win the Pushcart Prize. This year is especially gratifying as a number of my Idaho writer friends have also been given special mention. It’s nice to share this little bit of light with Joe Wilkins, Jeff P. Jones, Jerry Mathes, Daniel Orozco, Mary Clearman Blew, Annie Lampman, and Kelly Blikre. Go Idaho!
