The Best Day Ever
"This is the best day ever!" shouted a boy of about 10 as we rode the bus from the airplane to the airport terminal. "First I got to ride on a plane without a seat belt and now I'm riding on a bus without a seat belt." I wish I could share his enthusiasm. T...

Wesołych Świąt! Happy Easter! (A couple days late. Oops.) I love Easter. It's one of my favorite holidays. As a small child in southeast Missouri, Easter meant chocolate bunnies in our Easter Baskets, Easter egg hunts, new dresses, and watching the sun come...

Last year while attending the AWP conference I found a reading from poet Tomasz Różycki. I had never heard of him before but was intrigued by the chance to hear from a Polish writer. Różycki read from his book length poem, Dwanaście stacji or Twelve Station...
