Carving a New Block


Friday afternoon I began making a new block to illustrate my poem “If We Stop Teaching Cursive.” I transferred the design to the block, and . . .


began carving the inverted design. I hope to get it finished by next week. I want to make note cards with the print on the outside and the poem on the inside with room to write.


Late last year I made three limited edition broadside prints with my own block prints. I selected three poems that were included in the 2013 Writing from Inlandia anthology. The print above illustrates “A Dammed Life.”


“On Seeing the Cost of Time Change”


“Riding the Flexible Flyer”
