I’m really excited to be in the latest issue of Otoliths, Otoliths issue 51 (editor Mark Young) along with a host of wonderful writers and artists. Otoliths is one of my go-to reads but it’s the first time I’ve had work in it myself. One of the pieces, ‘The death of Sylvain’, is from a series I’ve been working on for a while now, and previous poems from the same series appeared in brief 40 (ed Ted Jenner) and 48 (ed Brett Cross). And it’s especially meaningful for me that ‘Elegy for Jill Chan’, written in memory of a wonderful poet and writer, who died earlier this year, was selected.
(My four poems are located here).
