DMo, JJo, and Town Creek Poetry Mo Jo

Town Creek PoetryThere’s a fine online poetry journal called Town Creek Poetry that you should check out. I want to say it’s based out of Washington State, but it’s online, so it’s based out of nowhere and everywhere, kinda like some poems.

One of the editors is Dan Morris, whose tastes I trust and appreciate. He’s a fellow alum. The other editor is William Wright, whose work I am familiar with and who I have published.

They have this poetry journal that’s been kicking around for about three years now. This is the seventh issue, and it features Jonathan Johnson, who I mentioned in a previous entry. Jonathan Johnson is a fine poet, who I hope a lot of people are paying attention to. If not, read this interview that Town Creek Poetry did with him. It’s one of the best interviews I’ve read in a long time. It’s sincere by interviewer and interviewee. If you read it, I’m sure you will want to read Jonathan Johnson’s poetry, which Town Creek Poetry is also featuring. He has two collections of poetry, Mastodon, 80% Complete and In the Land We Imagined Ourselves, both from Carnegie Mellon University Press. He also has a memoir, Hannah and the Mountain: Notes toward a Wilderness Fatherhood, which is also well worth reading.

So read Town Creek Poetry and read Jonathan Johnson. You won’t be disappointed.

In other words, to paraphrase Jonathan Johnson, Why don’t you read some poetry, mo fo!//
