News from Heid:

I am happy to announce the publication of my new poetry book Curator of Ephemera at the New Museum for Archaic Media  available from Michigan State University Press.  You can buy signed copies via Birchbark Books. The book contains the fantastic artwork of Andrea Carlson, and QR Codes that link to poem films, including a few new ones in collaboration with Jonathan Thunder.

Here are a couple poems from the collection that were published recently:

TWO EKPHRASTIC POEMS  BY HEID E. ERDRICH    — on artwork by Andrea Carlson and Jim Denomie who graciously shared their images. 

WINNER WINNER!  — after applying for 20 years in two categories, I’ve finally won a Loft-McKnight Award. People ask me what I’ll do with the prize and my answer is that I will WRITE. I am buying time with the award. That in itself is an enormous relief for which I am, daily, grateful.
