Wolfson Press Poetry News

One of the Wolfson Press poets (and an IUSB graduate), Steve Henn, has a poem coming out in *Rattle* as part of their “Poets Respond” series.
He is one of two winners of this weekly contest, and his poem appears today, the morning after the presidential debate. The contest focuses on poetic responses to current events:

Steve’s third book is forthcoming from Wolfson Press. It’s called Indiana Noble Sad Man of the Year.

Book description:

These poems, a series of snapshots in the life of Steve Henn’s poetry alter ego, “Steve Henn,” collectively capture not just a moment, but a whole history of teaching, parenting, walking around town, getting a canned ham as a Christmas bonus, shooing away door to door solicitors, crushing on a first grade classmate, and wrestling with the world of social media. The book, dedicated to Henn’s four children, includes artwork by each of his kids. By the end of the collection you too may understand why Steve Henn is Indiana Noble Sad Man of the Year.
