Huzzah for readings!

Take a look: Keynote poet David Rivard’s poem “Otherwise Elsewhere” was published in the American Poetry Review, along with this recent article about Steve Orlen. Rivard is the author of five books of poetry: Otherwise, Elsewhere (Graywolf, 2011), Sugartown (Graywolf, 2006), Bewitched Playground (Graywolf, 2000), Wise Poison (Graywolf, 1996), and Torque (Pitt, 1988).
