Would you like to know how to win an African Poetry Book Prize? The good folks at APBF asked me some tough questions regarding my creative process (argh!) and my manuscript, Fuchsia (which will be published soon). I talk about the influence of my culture and the ambiguosly secretive nature of Amharic. The interview is up at Prairie Schooner’s blog.
While you await for Fuchsia to come out, indulge in this short chapbook I’ve written, Behind Walls & Glass, now in its presale season from Finishing Line Press.
