News from the world of Frost Place alumni! James Washington, Jr.’s poems “Diners” and “Low-Down Kryptonite” will appear in a future issue of The Main Street Rag. James attended the Poetry Seminar in last year, where he read “Low-Down Kryptonite” in Robert Frost’s barn at the participant reading.

Greg [Pardlo] and I had discussed possible revisions just an hour or so before the readings. We shared a good laugh after I stepped from the podium because my “final” revisions occurred minutes before the reading. It was a high-risk maneuver that worked, as I knew it would, because I trusted Greg’s fine eye and mind.

A tip of the hat from James to Greg Pardlo and his Poetry Seminar workshop colleagues for their fine editorial suggestions, and a big congratulations to James from us at The Frost Place!

One thought on “Poems by Poetry Seminar Alumnus James Washington Jr. to Appear in The Main Street Rag

  1. Dear Daniel,

    Grammar Police note: “Alumni” is a masculine plural word, as “alumnae” is the feminine plural. The masculine singular is “alumnus’ and the feminine singular (as in Ginger) is “alumna.” If you have both guys and dolls, the default plural is the masculine “alumni.”

    Cheers,

    Deming
