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!
