Over the next week I’ll be posting information on the poets who will be reading from their work at the Bridgewater International Poetry Festival, Jan 15th-18th.
A. Logan Hill will be reading his poetry on Friday, January 16th, at 11:00am.
Hey ya’ll, super stoked to meet up with everyone & exchange languages. Here’s some stuff about & of me:
A. Logan Hill grew up just north of Harrisonburg, Virginia in an old house by a small town off the highway. As a Poetry candidate in the MFA Program for Poets & Writers, he is currently working on a novel, a new chapbook of “appropriations from texts on NOTHING,” a collection of “prosaic meanderings” with the working title “Reward,” new poems, a children’s book, journals, and a collection of essays. In addition, Logan has also begun preliminary research on “the art of the list” and his interests in the integrity of mobiles. He currently teaches College Writing in the University’s Writing Program and is an Associate Editor at Route 9 Literary Magazine.
Needless to say “logan’s poems are more like blooms.” — H I L L

in the bodies
complete loneliness —
like a rotting
the beautiful paired
with the mundane —
& the useless—
& the grotesque
of the beautiful—
some things will never end up in the wildflowers.
