I've come across a collection of writing on poetry and poetics by a friend, Samuel Rowe. Of particular interest is a recent review of Ron Silliman's latest book, a review of Gerald Bruns' What Are Poets For?, and an essay on "uncreative writing" - covering anthologies compiled by Kenneth Goldsmith, Craig Dworkin, and Marjorie Perloff.

There's also a nice video interview with Ron Silliman on his Revelator here.

Also, a transcription of a conversation between Tristan Gordon and Jessie Downs has been posted on Tristan's website. Complete with my own asinine interjections- a fascinating discussion of Jessie's work and music during the Winter and Spring of 2013.

And lastly, an essay written by Lauren Redhead on Chris Newman's composition and politics of self-alienation, through the lens of his solo piano piece "The Reason Why I am Unable to Live in my own Country as a Composer is a Political One".
