I have accepted an offer from Elizabeth Adams of Phoenicia Publishing in Montreal to publish Thaliad, my post-apocalyptic poem.
In the context of the poetry that is written and praised in our day, Thaliad is a strange creature. It is long. It is narrative. It is written in blank verse. Focused on characters who begin their story as children, the poem is epic in nature. It was written by someone who believes that the way forward is back through the tradition.
I'm grateful to Beth for asking about the poem and for caring so much about it. What a lovely Advent I am having (aside from the two-story indoor waterfall, that is, and why let a thing like that soak my spirits?) I now find myself in the unusual--for me, at least--position of having six books forthcoming.
A small portion of Thaliad (print and podcast) may be found at qarrtsiluni in the "journaling the apocalypse" issue: http://qarrtsiluni.com/2008/12/17/thaliad-excerpt/
