Now that I seem to have put down permanent roots over at www.awritersalchemy.wordpress.com for my Writers Alchemy blog, I have decided to turn this one over (or back) to One Bad Poem. To read my craft talk, which explains what I'm up to, go to http://awritersalchemy.blogspot.com/2010/05/one-bad-poem-essay-by-bethany-reid-if.html. And happy writing!
To see the announcement for my poetry book, Sparrow, selected by poet Dorianne Laux for the Kenneth and Geraldine Gell Poetry Prize at Writers & Books, go to http://www.wab.org/gell-poetry-prize/gell-prize-2012-winner/
You can find a review by Kathleen Kirk at EIL: http://www.escapeintolife.com/blog/review-of-sparrow-by-bethany-reid/

IT'S ABOUT TIME
I posted the essay below so that my friend Esther Helfgott could pick it up already blog-formatted for her site. Visit her at the It's about Time reading series at the Ballard Public Library on the second Tuesday of every month, six p.m., or at this URL: http://itsaboutimewriters.homestead.com/
