CA Conrad Tribute

A well deserved tribute to CA Conrad on Ron Silliman's blog.

I first heard Conrad read at Molly's Bookstore... think it was 2005, not long after I moved to South Philly. I count that reading as the beginning of a kind of second life for me as a writer, a change that's drawn me back to poetry, nudged fiction to the side. Can't imagine a better place to be for poets than Philly right now. This has been the most productive five years of my life--and there's no question that Conrad is there at the center, a gravitational point around which bands of creative energy seem to whirl--like planetary rings.

Conrad HERE will make you love the snow.
