What’s New in Poetry, 1-29-15

Hi!!! This week’s episode of What’s New in Poetry contains four terrific new videos!!! Please watch & enjoy & comment & send me messages!!! I’m at or you could track me down in person in Atlanta!

I can’t believe how awesome these four poets are!!! erica lewis and Elisa Gabbert each have a couple of books out, and erica has a chapbook forthcoming from Lame House. erica lives in San Francisco and Elisa lives in Denver. Paul and Ella SHOULD each have a full-length out soon–they’re both so good!! Paul lives in IN and Ella lives in CO. Both have done stuff for Fanzine, but Paul also runs RadioActive Moat and Ella edits Bombay Gin. Each of these videos is frickin awesome. I’m going to pop some popcorn & watch them again with you!

Love, Bruce
