I had the pleasure of working with Todd as a judge for the Dyer-Ives Kent County Poetry Competition 2014 and have shared his innovative poetry from Song of The Owashtanong (edited by David Cope) with writing students. This is a must read.
Curbside Splendor Publishing
We don’t publish much poetry, but when we do, we publish collections we’re absolutely geeked about. Feast your eyes on THE DEAD WRESTLER ELEGIES by Asian-American poet and illustrator W. Todd Kaneko, coming out in November. Yes these are poems and illustrations about dead wrestlers, but they are about so much more, and for us a prime example of how powerful and accessible poetry can be. More soon.
