Reflections on the Teche for Roundup... and for a look at some Louisiana poems she received from me (complete with typo) as part of Summer Poetry Swap. I lived in Folsom, LA, for 5 magical years, so I felt right at home in those poems. Sometimes I miss the bayou!
And now a bit of news, fresh from yesterday's Publisher's Weekly:
“Rebecca Davis at Boyds Mills/Wordsong has acquired Pop! Bam! Boom! by Irene Latham. Explosions start small and grow ever-larger in this collection of poems where popcorn kernels leap, ideas tsunami, fireworks frazzle, racehorses surge, dreams steam, and supernovas radiate. A pub date has not been set; Rosemary Stimola of Stimola Literary Studio negotiated the deal for world rights.
Yay! I sometimes forget to celebrate my writing successes, so I made myself write this blog post. The announcement caught me totally by surprise!
Confession: I stole the header for this post from a congratulatory email sent to my by Greg Pincus. SO clever. Thank you!
It's been such a busy summer, so I haven't shared my own amazing Summer Poem Swap goodies, but I will, very soon. Such a wonderful community we have here... putting it on my #EveryBrilliantThing list. xo
